about

Poetry is for me about observation and story-telling.  The poems in this collection have been culled from a daily experiment in writing covering the last year.

A variety of topics see the seasons unfold against a backdrop of local and world events. Tales of scandal, debacle, Jubilee, Olympics are juxtaposed with more personal histories - The ubiquitous Mrs Jones and the man on the Clapham Omnibus...The voices of participants and of detached observers, find the tramp in Hyde Park valuing the quality press for its greater thermal qualities and the young boy experiencing his first football match just after the Hillsborough Report is published.

The poems utilise a variety of structures, but common to all is the perception of truth from the perspective of the poetic persona, public and private.

All characters are fictional, but no doubt we all recognise ourselves and our neighbours within these pages.  Surely that is part of the reflection of the human condition that is poetry?

The process has been a cathartic one.  The final collection for Windows and Doors emerged surreptitiously. 

I hope you you enjoy dipping into it.
