                                                                                              Poem from Life and Hope

Vulnerable Voices

Who said it‘s hard? It‘s impossible to complete such tasks. More work, less staff. Who‘s making the decisions? I hear it loud: cuts, more cuts, more cuts.It‘s all psychological scaremongering. Those who have jobs want to keep them.Those who do not, want to find them. Suddenly there‘s giant leaps of incomers from afar without work and all the time they say it benefits us all

Quinn Agathoni

                                                                                 Seven Sins

seven-sinSSeven Sins is my first published novel.  I’ve been trying for an awfully long time but finally, there’s my name in print… well one of my names anyway.  Quinn Agathoni is the name under which I write fiction.  The name on my passport is Alcuin Edwards.

Extract from Seven Sins: In a reversal of Dracula, Quinn Agathoni’s Transylvanian heroine, Janie Hunyadi, finds herself in the demon-haunted wilds of the Lincolnshire fens. In Seven Sins, she finds herself trapped under the power of a demon, and is forced to undergo an ordeal based on the Seven Deadly Sins. 

                                                      from Seven Sins

 

Chapter 1

The train to Peterborough was clean and modern but after that came the bus.  It was blue and cream and it looked like it was made when Matthias Corvinus was a boy. Janie stared out of the window as the bus rattled her over the flat landscape at glacial pace.  Here was neither the majestic dark beauty of the mountain home of her childhood nor the shining towers of glass and steel that took their place in London.  Instead, there was a plain of green fields stretching to the horizon. She sighed.  Over and over again she sighed. Eventually the bus left the region of black earth and crawled between the acres of newly built houses that showed she had arrived in Bourne. There was no cab office at the bus station but she had seen one in the town about a half mile back. She didn’t know where Uncle Peter lived and she had no number so she dialled the cab company instead. Time passed in the bus station.  Flies buzzed.  Some young boys were smoking defiantly, stubbing out cigarettes on the ‘No Smoking’ sign.  They were shouting exuberantly, practising their Anglo-Saxon and then one turned to Janie. “Ey, blondie.  Yah minge itchin’?  Want me to fill un?” Janie ignored them and stood watching the road for signs of the cab.”Ey ‘srood not to talk to wuss.” “Pardon?” They were young, standing on the threshold of manhood perhaps with muscles starting to grow and with sparse hair growing on their zit-ridden chins.  They stood in a parody of menace and Janie laughed.  As they gathered around, hooting and jeering.  Janie aimed her foot with wall-shattering strength at the nearest pair of testicles.

As the closest boy doubled over, she said, not even taking her eyes off the road.  “I’d take your friend to the hospital if I were you”. One boy flicked open a blade. “Seriously?” asked Janie.  “Do you boys have a death wish or something?”Janie stood taller than most of them.  She turned to face the boy with the knife, her grey eyes burning hot like storm clouds and said, “I came here for a rest.  Don’t bother me and I won’t bother you.”She reached out to take the knife from him, taking the blade in her palm and letting her blood drip on the floor as she forced it from his hand.  “Leave me.” she said, and they did.

Nick & Heather Sullivan

SIBLING RIBALDRIES ! Rather Rude Rhymes

Sibling RabaldriesSibling Ribaldries ! Rather Rude Rhmes our first collection South East London sisters Nicky & Heather Sullivan have been performing as ‘Office Girls Go Crazy’ for many years, amusing the clientele of SE London pubs and clubs with their odd poems, (composed during their lunch hour) terrible singing and smutty jokes. Performances supporting John Cooper Clark and Vic Reeves Big Night out in New Cross led them to the legendary Tunnel Club, where they braved flying beer glasses, chairs and bodies – all encouraged by Malcolm Hardee. Great fun! Still performing their rather rude poems and jokes, the Office Girls are regulars on the London poetry/comedy circuit, and of course, Edinburgh. Now you can read a collection of their poems in ‘Sibling Ribaldries – Rather Rude Rhymes’ – if you dare

 

                                                                      Poem from Sibling Ribaldries

                                                                                    TITS UP!

I was feeling a bit down the other day, As my chest had southwards drifted, So I popped into M&S And bought a new bra, Well now I feel quite uplifted! nicky sullivan

  Making it Verse

Making it Verse epubI was born in Stoke Newington and brought up in North London in the boso .Making it Verse m of a large family. Being Anglo/Arab I always had the extra influence that my Dads heritage offered which made me a little more open to other religions and philosophies from the start .Having always been aware of the unseen influences around us I realised my altruism could only be made true if I wrapped it up in poetry, Making it Verse  where it would be safe. In this world of illusion anything from the heart needs to be protected. The growth of my work has hung on the fact I do believe we are being directed by an unseen force. My dilemma is what to call that. I would like you to read the     poems from that angle to get the true meanings and messages concealed within.

                                                                    Poem From ‘Making it Verse’

                                                 ‘In the blizzards of my memory lies a piece of broken glass,

                                                            In the sunsets of my fantasies the heart is beating fast.

                                                        In the rivers of my sorrows sits a changeling, so alone,

                                                    In the fairground of my happiness, freaks and hobos roam!’
