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

DOORWAY TO THE ROOM OF CLOUDS

‘Doorway to The Room of Clouds’ ‘One minute I held the key Next the walls were closed on me I discovered that my castle stands Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand’ Coldplay I thought I’d try something random again, just writing the first thing/things that came into my head. I’ve not done it
