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


I was born in the UK in 1969 but grew up in Auckland, New Zealand, where I have recently completed a Master of Creative Writing at Auckland University of Technology (AUT). I have previously published poetry in several journals and collections, and have work appearing in the forthcoming Poetry NZ Yearbook (March, 2018).

I saw the monk, there
sitting by the dirt road
in silence
while the mountain behind
breathed out winter
and the leaves flapped
like the hanging carpets in Rabat

And I thought of walking up to him
Although I had nothing to say.
