I’ve had three poems published on one of my favourite poetry sites, Wild Court. Here’s an excerpt from one of them, ‘The Epicureans’.
‘Maybe because they lived
on two-year work visas,
sou-cheffing through Soho
or mixing their Last Words
for city boys in high-rise bars,
comfortable in the starch
of their denim aprons,
as they navigated the balance
of maraschino and bitters,
quoting Saki on green chartreuse.’

I'm a writer and poet. My first novel, All the Dogs, appeared in 2008, and was described by Niall Griffiths as 'a stirring debut, a compellingly written tract on the importance of finding a place on the earth.' My fiction has appeared in London Noir, Crimewave, Black Static and 3AM. I live in London, where, amongst other things, I teach Creative Writing for the Open University. https://absenceclub.com
