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


Born and raised in Northern Ireland.
I studied English literature at the University of Glasgow. I now live and work in South Korea. I have had previous poems published in the Shot Glass Journal and the Fib Review.

When your teeth churn like chalk
Into a crushed-grinding of the
Things you thought
The dreams that still spring
Right into the eye of
A junction between
Nostalgia and fear
A sense of things
Better or not better before
The fear of the novelty
Being worn
Worn like an old suit
That pleases a sound
Torn between now and then
