Better Than Sleep

You can find many of these poems on my website, www.BetterThanSleep.com
If you like one or two, download them and be happy - and know that I will be.
If you like more than one or two, why not buy the book? (Even poets have to eat ...)

My choice from more than thirty years of work, including early poems from "Reluctant Rebel" (1975), the dream-like (nightmarish?) semi-autobiographical "Sweeney Jim" (1983), the complete poem-sequence "Better Than Sleep" (1985), the Jesus Bhakti Poems (1997) and "Fin de Millennium" (1999), along with my latest collection "DRINKING-UP TIME", with the long poems "US AND THEM" and "NAKED ON DARTMOOR"

Excerpt
We may no longer gather rosebuds:
Listen - midst the ash and bone
Limp red roses whisper tales
Of rosebuds dead and gone.

The flies drone on then stop. The silence
Fills with heat and sun and smells.
A fly moves. In the silence
I think I hear St Osyth's bells

Ring out across the empty marsh
Green and grey, the cold grey sea
Washing the foaming sand, a gull
Call - call - call - to me.
