POETRY


This is the way the world ends... apocalyptic poetry cycle and my best work yet.



A poem cycle in the tradition of 'die Winterreise', a reflection of the bleak and beautiful city that gave it life. 




Brings together many of my more recent poems.



'Death puts his arms around you...'




There's a whole world of poetry out there, just waiting to be found...
