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!


63. THE SECOND TIME AROUND (A poem from 94 - revised)

I hear that life is returning

It's just a standard queue

This time it's handed out

Just to a chosen few


They say it is like china

We must treat it with care

You are not to make more

It is not OK to share


I hear it has opened its eyes

A new heart like a drum beat

Listen to its music

This time it is going behind the mask


So line up IF your name is called

You can sign on the paper soul

You should feel the differences

THIS time, existence is whole
