Two of my poems, Ghostly Sightings of the Pornographic Lady and St. Enodoc, appear in the 30th issue of Monkey Kettle magazine, available to buy here. The latter poem is also included in my recently published chapbook, In Shock, Cycling to Roke Farm.

St. Enodoc

The creeping sync of Sinkininny Church;
And the sound in thrall to the shells that perch
On the graves is the tunnelling elfmill
Of ancient waves, breaking to fill
The rock pools of Daymer Bay.

A name I twice like to say:
Herberta Blanche Bone, Herberta Blanche Bone;
Her grave by the grave of the man for whom "Joan
Hunter Dunn" was the name most deserving
Of uninhibited and unswerving
