Poem Bank 15/12/17

Hello again. I found some more poems from my Records I missed, so here they are from little bites of pleasure. The last in this list has since been converted from a written to musically backed poem (a song, if you're being generous), which you can hear on the Soundcloud link below to my Dude … Continue reading Poem Bank 15/12/17

Nanowrimo ‘17: Race (to the end…)

Geoff was sure this was the end. He was now being stolen away with a rogue team of robotics, which had been a delirious and unaware decision, having only just come into consciousness. Behind them, no doubt, was a team of expert robotic assassins. He was their bartering chip, though somehow he thought his value … Continue reading Nanowrimo ‘17: Race (to the end…)

Nanowrimo ‘17: Onyx

Janet and Juniper stood atop the bridge clasping flasks. Three months had passed since the first Windego incident on the town steps. 'It's really quite delightful,' Juniper giggled. 'Oh, the coffee?'

Is this truly what Gordon saw in a family, these... shells? Is this what Gordon had considered Geoff and Mum and Dad to be all the long? … Continue reading Nanowrimo ‘17: Stag

Nanowrimo ‘17: The Root Network

Geoff's fingers became knotted as he tried to reel back, and it became more apparent that these were not bloodied roots but fingers. They gripped Geoff tight but he could feel no firm fingers; it was all tendons and shoots, as if the hand had become one with the earth. Geoff pulled back harder still, … Continue reading Nanowrimo ‘17: The Root Network

Nanowrimo ‘17: Girl

In one swift movement, Wolf writhed aggressively in Mrs Tern's swinging grasp, so that her gaping mouth connected not with the soft flesh of her chin but with the spiny protrusions of her collarbone. The assailant yelled out as the rusted metal pierced deep into the roof of her mouth, giving Wolf enough time to … Continue reading Nanowrimo ‘17: Girl
