My poems have been published internationally in a wide range of print and online publications as well being broadcast on radio and incorporated into poetry installations, contemporary artwork and film. I also sometimes integrate spoken word pieces into my songs. On the 1st of each month I will share another previously published poem below. CLICK JOURNAL COVERS for more poems.

 

 

STRELITZIA REGINAE

 

Clenched winds

shake the teeth from a tree

where the sugarhouses hang

like ripened, round sebaceous glands

 

that rise from pale root canals

where echoes swell

to the bough and hook

of each hand

that comes to cleave the last fruit.

 

All night I watched the land leak

its last breath.

All night I stood bent

like the neck of a mangled crane

that thought it was a bird.
