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!




Up on the roof

we both made our promises

Up on the roof

You gave me your kiss


At midnight underneath the stars

We held each other

We took off our clothes

We became lovers


As the moonlight shone down

Our bodies in the spotlight

We sculptured ourselves

As an artiest's clay


We looked up at the stars

As our body heat kept us warm

We talked about dreams

What the future might hold


This is our place

Where no one can find us

Where we can be free

TO be who we are


Up on the roof

As We pull on our clothes

Kiss our goodbye
