"... 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).

Birds vanish the last moments of grief
written on a wall now washed by rain
in a garden where the watchers sleep
and all the stones with their pieces of light
will tell us of those things.
