  1. The Machine of civilisation, I love the imagery and the corresponding words that complement them. Very dark and somewhat apocalyptic, but captures the essence of the trajectory in which society is heading.
    I have a dark side to my writing, I constantly research what would fit in with my work. The artwork and scripture has most definitely captured me. A juxtaposition of beauty and dread.

  2. Thanks, William. Very much appreciated. This is part of a larger suite that I’ll post in the coming weeks. The final sweep of the poem is a bit more optimistic. Stay tuned!
