THE FROZEN BOXER

Artist – Spunky Zoe 7 hours till tomorrow 17 hours back to yesterday 7 hours I could do without ‘Cause tomorrow’s isn’t just another day See these eyes – read what they’re saying Look close – begin your praying See these eyes – full of emptiness Save your tears – don’t read the press See

MAKING DRACULA REDUNDANT

‘Bono’s Worse Nightmare’ I’ve been watching the new take on Dracula on the TV. I’m two episodes in. It’s not brilliant but I score it OK. The thing is the writers have missed a trick. To be certain to save yourself from Dracula you have to remember to carry a crucifix around with you at

THE CLOAK

‘In The Days Before Tomorrow’ I got a marketing brochure selling vitamins and an easier menopause in the post. I’ve no idea how they got my name and address. The thing was that on the front cover it said ‘START THE NEW YEAR ON THE RIGHT FOOT’. It wasn’t a lot of use to me,

‘LAUGHING AT THE MOON’

WHEN A POEM BECOMES A SONG This song, ‘Laughing At The Moon’ belongs to the acclaimed poet & writer, Kathryn Duff. A truly lovely lady. Above is Kate’s song, ‘Laughing At The Moon’. I hope you enjoy. I had the privilege of working with her providing the melody, vocals and production for this number that is

SNOWFLAKES AND FIRE

‘The Sea Puts on a Show For Free’ I was fighting with insomnia when I wrote this. Couldn’t sleep. It didn’t help that The Arsenal had lost to the Chavs in a game we deserved to win. It’s at times like these words choose themselves and I keep out of their way. The death toll

MARILYN, THE PAPARAZZI & PLANET MARS

‘Not my lucky day’ – read on! I tried my best but couldn’t find the photographer’s name for this, so I can’t credit it Weeks and weeks of rain. Every now and then some hailstones; every other day early morning frost. So, totally unexpected, on Christmas morning here in South-East England, sun – zero wind,

ME & MY GUN

Artist ‘Iced-Blackberry’ 2012 There’s an annoying Christmas ad on TV that has a melody I don’t particularly like yet it’s one of those songs that get inside your head. Christmas songs on ads are often like it. I call them creativity destroyers. I checked out the one that was killing my creativity. It’s a song

THE DAY THE TREES DISAPPEARED

Zoolon’s Simple Take on Trees I wouldn’t like to be a tree in the Amazon right now. Having said that I probably wouldn’t particularly want to be a tree in the first place. I’d never get to see The Arsenal play again or get to eat macaroni cheese. Then there’s dogs with an urgent need

PEOPLE

‘It Wasn’t Me’  Politicians get on my nerves. Their promises rain down like confetti at a wedding but mostly never happen. Some are great liars, others just feed on the lies. PEOPLE Harry lives in a cardboard box behind the Eiffel Tower Alice sits in doorways hoping for hard currency in exchange for a wilting

LETTER IN A BOTTLE

‘Claudette Colbert still from Cecil B. DeMille’s ‘Cleopatra’ movie 85 years ago’ He was thinking to himself that he’d never written a letter. A proper letter, using a pen and paper. A letter he would write, sign and post. He decided he’d have a go although the absence of pre-emptive text was worrying him. His
