Grey night seas turn black
making tired blood, making bone
from stars. Old crab light,
the smart shore, pours and claws free.
The chiffon surf is sightless.
I’m very pleased to announce that I have a new poem, ‘Lord of Misrule’, coming out in Cōnfingō 8 — a gorgeous journal of new fiction, poetry and art produced in my home town of Manchester. The poem is part of a new series of highly-tangential and associative poems I’ve been working on since October 2016.
The new issue of Cōnfingō should appear around October 2017. Meanwhile, thanks to Tim Shearer for taking the piece and I look forward to sharing it with you all.
In a delightful surprise, my friend and colleague, Nicholas Royle, has a new collection of short stories, Ornithology, being published by Cōnfingō on 2nd June, and you can glimpse his beautiful book on their website now.
