Alight here for poetry

You wait ages for an acceptance and then two come along in one week. A poem by me for Willesden Green is now included on Alight Here [Gorn!], a marvellous project that has been noticed and had articles about it in well known publications as far afield as New York. I think one or two of my pictures are coming up on there as well in a while - will keep an eye out for them.

There May Be Horrors

There may be horrors on the floor of the sea
and ever more sorrows down a stony road,
but we are not at the bottom of the sea
and where this road winds nobody knows.
So while there's still rosé from France
and seasick priests are going green,
might I have the honour of this dance
with you, my ginger Rosaleen?
