106. Smiling dancers. (20th Sept 2015). Though the two pieces paired up here were written a month apart they always felt like they belonged together. It’s the bookending of the maternal life cycle and the journey from the joy of … Continue reading

I’ve been at this lyrics/poetry malarky more or less exactly two years this month (May ’15). This piece is I think the most complete rewrite I’ve done in that time. Version 1 which is the bottom piece here, No.22, was … Continue reading

1.Ice cream and arguments, sunshine and tears. (April / May ’13)
