Words

These poems have been written since the late 1990s, most recently with the Together! Pop-Up Poetry Club whose poets continue to energise me. I have largely earned my living as a writer and artist since I was 21, but I also believe in data freedom and art for all. As with my other work, I therefore share the online edition here, and welcome and thank you for your interest and time.
