The Cold Tap Sings

AUGMENTED REALITY

Performing at the launch of SJ Fowler’s Sticker Poems in London last week. What a pleasure to perform again! & out in the wild too! Sticker Poems and Virtual Oasis, the anthology of AI-inspired poetry I read from, are published by Trickhouse Press. They also published my selection of minimal poems, ATOMISED, last year.

NOT OK!

I MUST BE THE FIRST

The best poem set to music since Having a Coke with You. Out now on Whities.

EN PLEIN AIR

En Plein Air

I scroll thru
Hockney’s
Yosemite Suite
painted on
his iPad
en plein air
exactly where
I wanna be
among purplish
redwood forests
within earshot
of Ribbon Fall
I travel online

THIS HIGH ROPE OF WATER

In this high rope of water
twisting from times long gone
down the famous falls
I have bound my vows
for ages still to come
