At the start of the year the universe was calling me to write a new set of poems. I let the ideas that I had sit with me for a while and then I set about writing out what would be the storyline into what the poems would fit. It seemed the work would involve written set pieces and poetry. I was all set to go and then...... THE WORLD SEEMED TO GO CRAZY! It became clear to me that I was not being called to write out MY idea but that I needed to report on what was happening in the world and how it was making me feel.

the BLACK dog is a term used to describe depression and it a dark dog. As I started this work we are in a very dark, depressing time in the world and I had to reflect on that. So this is me, the Dark dog, barking back at the world! This is very much a live piece of work as we turn through this year. I also have my reflections in here, on my own thoughts, feelings and life. This is my heart open and my soul on show for anyone to see. It is me being brave, I hope you enjoy!





The rain didn't fall on the bridge that night

Blood from the blade of sharpened knife

The rain couldn't cover up the lie

They think things will change when they take a life


While we eat in restaurants you try to invade

We will not stop or turn away

You think this means you have won

You wont ever take down our sun


The blood may have spilt 

the tears may flow

We will come back harder

That is just how it goes


With answers so simple

But the world will not hear

If we carry on

The end is all I fear
