My new book, Head Traumas, is now available for Kindle here (US) and here (UK).

A revised version of The Madness of the Bird King.
Several other Bird King poems.
Mr Punch Dreams and associated poems.
Nine ONEIROSCOPE text-image pieces.
The Ministry of Teeth.
Loads of pictures, including Moon Faces, Mechanical Muses, Thresholds.
Loads of other poems.
over a dark sea
looking up from what you’re doing
what you’re not doing
what I don’t see
or the same thing
when I was eight
I cut my foot on a sea shell
blood is red sea water
put a shell to your ear
you’ll hear your own blood
howling in the night of your body
but you’ve heard that before
let me tell you another
when I was twelve I had my first wank
afterwards I felt anxious and guilty
as if everyone knew
as if they could hear the blood
still surging through me
dragged by a mad moon
neither of us are looking now
maybe we weren’t looking in the first place
the light is changing
a sea mist Photoshops out
