In the Pale Harbour

There the men carry the women that they marry and as old men tarry old women walk and carry. Children scrambling skip and swim and though the boats may quiver all's lifeless, scenic, still.

A retelling of Orpheus

Hello everybody, I've recently been experimenting with recording a few readings of poems and I decided to put them up on Soundcloud. The poems are part of a collection I've been working on, a retelling of the myth of Orpheus, focusing especially on his dismemberment and floating in the sea. This is ...
