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!


49. FIRE AND FURY (Jong-un and trump)

​You promise fire and fury 

He promises to blow you away

Can you both go play in the other room

While us adults get on with our lives


This whole world is going crazy

Let us get away from this year

Forcing me to question

Our right to a place on this Earth


So please just take it to the playground

I'm sure you will love to hear "FIGHT! FIGHT!"

It sounds so bloody cliché 

But open your bloody eyes


So go play with your fireworks 

Just make sure you leave us a home

As you choke on the ashes

Know that you choke on your own
