"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


Anthony tends to fidget with his thoughts in the hope of laying them to rest. He has managed to lay them in a number of literary magazines including The Faircloth Review, The Pygmy Giant, Shot Glass Journal, Turbulence, Underground, The Bohemyth, Torrid Literature Journal and Crack the Spine, amongst others.

Anthony Ward



I find it easier to express the emotions of others
While wrestling with my own,
Pinning them down as they overwhelm me–
Dying to live through sheer exasperation.
With only compulsion driving my feelings
I relate to no-one but myself,
Losing my mind to my imagination
Aspiring the vaults of my mind,
That place me on top of the world
While letting me down,
Failing miserably to achieve my end.
