Poetry-related things.

UK Poetry Magazines

These pages were created years ago and are probably woefully out of date.


Thoughts on some poets.


These reviews were written for various competitions, a long time ago. I didn't win a prize in any of them.

Own Efforts

  • Poems that I've had published, plus a few that I haven't.


The year's last waves of activity have scattered;
barely before the days have yawned awake,
they yawn shut again; studded into the air's grey mildness
are benign needles of cold, suggesting snow.

Night is a shallow arch over day.

No need now for plans; they grow damp in the air
— throw instead all paper on the fire.
