Down Ghost Lane

The opening (title) poem deals with revisitation of childhood haunts. The Water Serpent and the She-Serpent recalls Keats’s Lamia. I was Born a Horse is an allegorical life story, from childhood to old age. He ventures, physically and mentally, into uncharted dimensions. The Shy Cold Moon is charmingly deified. Ebbs and Flows uses the elements as metaphors for a human life. Sanatorium – a Survivor poem par excellence. In the Final Count mourns a bereavement. Out of the blue it was you – a flashback to romantic, enduring and spiritual love. Key embraces the ups and downs of life, and the interrelation of dream and reality. Blackbird Soul reflects on the question of the immortality of the departed. Jean’s Secret explores a suicidal drowning – where total communion with the sea represents the fulfillment of life.

 Poppy Dillon Tiny Collisions

Tiny-Collisions

Poppy Dillon First loves and anxiety to hangovers and periods, Poppy Dillon’s heartfelt yet humorous debut poetry collection documents the awkward experiences of her early 20s.  The collection is full of stories about growing up, and how chance encounters and relationships can shape you. From the momentous ones, like falling in and out of love, making and losing friends, to the seemingly insignificant, like that person you sat next to on a megabus for nine hours. Poppy is now 27 and a full-time copywriter and spoken word poet in London.

Nihilistic City Nights.

 Nihilistic City Nights.

Nihilistic City Nights .  “The poetry of Robert Yates is both brooding and exacting; something about it unnerves us, it sees too clearly into things: the dystopian vacuity of modern life, our shared language doomed to a series of dull clucks and futile gestures. Don’t come to these poems for consolation, but for the exhilaration of seeing all with absolute clarity. Uncompromising and strangely haunting stuff.” Fran Lock. Robert Yates can be found on South London Books

David Lee Morgan  Nazis Need Jews

Nazis Need Jews “When I was a kid, I thought antisemitism was dead forever, died of shame. Turns out it’s like crabgrass. You think it’s wiped out. You dug it all up – it’s gone – but then here it is again.” A fearless, compassionate look at conspiracy theory, fascism, antisemitism, and the possibility of worldwide revolutionary change. London, UK, and BBC Slam Poetry Champion, David Lee Morgan, has travelled the world with his saxophone as a performance poet and musician. He has featured at many poetry festivals and events, including StAnza (St. Andrews, Scotland), Lingo (Dublin, Ireland), the New York Poetry Festival, and the Isle of Wight Festival. He is a longstanding member of the Writers Guild (has served on the Executive Committee) and holds a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from Newcastle University.

Keith Robert Bray

SKYHIGH DOWN TO GROUND

SKYHIGH DOWN TO GROUND My fourth book of poems ‘Skyhigh down to ground’ begins and engages with the political much more directly than my previous poetry collections. Intuitive responsesmore questioning than providing any actual solutions or answers. The content slowly moves towards the domestic, the social and more personal as the book progresses.
The book is dedicated to Cam Ringel, Poet Razz, Jazzman John Clarke and Maggie Swampwino. Four people who had and still have a profound influence on my creative work. Not their actual words/music as such but the way they lived their lives and stayed true to their inner voice.

Aldo Quagliotti

Japanese Tosa is the first poetic collection by Aldo Quagliotti, a journey summing up ten years of ink experiments that accompany, like rock engravings, the evolution of the narrative style of a child in love with poetry in his nightly writing sessions, now a married man. An uncertain path, which begins in its heart of hearts: the eye of the reader, who will be able to find a personal glimmer of revenge, of hitting back, of desire for a challenge, between the folds of reasoning and emotional eclipses. A deep and lacerating desire for universal empathy that can fall from the sky like an angry downpour. Because if poetry has a claim, it is to pierce the chilling wall of indifference and to catch the heart unprepared when it needs to give it the brightest of embraces. He will then be able to bark out his ferocious desire to live, despite any wavering. Like that Japanese Tosa, a dog breed that nobody wants to take charge of, which continues to howl about its desire to wander around, in a world dominated by interpersonal immobility.

Pauline Deakin

Dreams, Screams & Washing Machines

Pauline Deakin “Dreams, Screams and Washing Machines is a delight. Pauline Deakin has a particular gift for unraveling the poetic from the prosaic; dusting off the treasures and insights which hide in plain sight of the domestic and the commonplace.” Mark Coleman
Dreams, Screams and Washing Machines is the poetry book for people who don’t think poetry is for them. Funny, moving and deeply real, it unravels the dreams (and nightmares) of ordinary life. You may never look at a washing machine in the same way again.

poetry book

Art Squares Look & Stare My third book of poems is a broad selection of themes and ideas written over the last two years. Some drawn from personal experience and direct observation while others more playful, fanciful, surreal; reflecting individual concerns more sociological than political. A mixed bag of assorted vignettes and anecdotes brought together under the collective . A large majority of the poems are written and presented in traditional stanza form. A conscious decision made in order to tighten up the work to make the pieces concise, pithier and structurally more coherent.
