This is my poetry site from now on. I have given up on myspace. Their “improvements” kept killing my links and losing my posts. I did have over a quarter of a million hits on my poetry blog while I was posting there, and made some great friends, and had a lot of fun (Burning Effigy’s Advice Column is a treasured memory, as was “The Big Ugly”) so the decision to leave it was not taken lightly.
I can be found fart-arsing around on facebook, but here is where I will be posting my poetry. Read, subscribe, comment or not, entirely as you wish. I am creating an e-chapbook of the poems of mine I think are worth sorting out into one place, for me as much as anyone else. I shall also add new ones occaisionally. I’m only including a couple of poems from “The Beautiful Octopus Club” as a taster because I still hope one day to find someone to publish them as a chapbook.
To encourage any publishers who stumble across this, here are some facts about my poetry…
