Confines (poem/repost)


today I’m at South Brighton

walking along the foaming sand

watching the escalator

waves roll in


I’m holding my camera tightly

as if you were contained

within its body

& you are


we were in the garden

& I was storing images

your rare smiles


for a single


the flurry of movement



all I have is

a dozen blurred pictures

of your embarrassed

shy smiles

trying to escape

the lens

This was first posted on my blog in January 2018. The poem was originally published in Glottis.

Tomorrow morning I finally move into my new flat. I’m feeling a bit nervous about it all, and I’m hoping it all goes okay. I’m also rapidly running out of funds…

Please donate! 🙂
