Deciphering The Dust: In Three Places

And a friendly reminder, as of April 2017, my first collection – BONE INK – is available for order from Guillotine Press. This is one of the poems that didn’t make it into the collection.

Deciphering The Dust: In Three Places

Had an excellent time a couple of weekends ago collaborating with a team of poets, illustrators and filmmakers to create a filmpoem in 48 hours. We were completing in a competition organised by Cinepoems in Glasgow.

Our team included three poets РClare Archibald, Ally Gillon and Rico Craig, an illustrator  -Brian McHenry and a filmmaker РIvan Gonzalo Moyano.

In 48 hours, spread across three countries (and three time zones) we managed to write a three part poem following the journey of a ghostly character – Riddles – through different locations. The separate sections of the poem, through illustration and text try to capture the lingering mysteries of each place. Gonzalo has animated Brian’s illustrations¬†and added collections of found sounds recorded at each location.
