The End

‘Death’ is now finished. A new volume entitled ‘Truth’ will commence shortly, but  as ‘Death ‘was the author’s favourite, thus far, the three best offerings in this volume, chosen by a panel of one,  will be republished.


Most of my life has been spent on the bench, occasionally called into the game by extravagance or attenuation. Waiting has turned a loner into a recorder - nondescript and inconsequential, more not noticed than overlooked - the non-vantage point of children not yet considered old enough to understand. Orphaned Islands (Un)poetry is a lifetime of picking anecdotes up and not throwing them away. Stories collected like odds and ends placed in a box in the basement, the garage, the garden shed - uncertain as to what their use might be but knowing that one day there might be one.
