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!



LOOK, I walked last night with Apollyon

Yet it was not on his invite

For it was I who held out my hand

Took hold of the one I love


I'm sure the walls closed in

Or maybe fell down upon me

should have made me cry

Taken all the blood from my body


I guess the cooker of my heart was heated

I wanted to bake your cake

I wanted all that was on offer

I wanted to take it all


Are you out there?

Spirit tell me you're not afraid

For I know the wrong I made

Take it all away

I should not hold these precious gifts

If I can be so cruel


After all of this I want to sleep to take this in

For I can not help myself

I'm human now, I know I am

The one who let down his value 


So what now? 

Who next?

How mean

The bastard in me

Who let go of his guard
