Andervayne’s Dream

In these times of quick gratification and short attention spans, I decided to try and buck the trend and present something not only with greater length but also depth.

The poems in this collection were written over a long period and for different purposes. They are varied but they are all long. And they all represent challenges. Each was a challenge to myself, to sustain a quality of writing for a long period and within tight constraints of form while still telling a story. They also represent and challenge to the reader. The throw off the pressure of everyday life,  the pressure to hurry, hurry, hurry to take the time to read something, absorb it over time.

Such effort needs reward, these poems should not be a one-time quick fix. If the reader is going to put that effort in then there should be a payoff, they should be able to continue to get something from it afterwards. Whether that be from contemplation of what they have digested or from revisiting, rereading and seeing things they missed the first time around. So the final challenge to me was to provide this depth of content – not just quantity.

In the next few days, there will follow a brief description of each of the five poems in this collection.

First Man – First Class!

I am a little bit obsessed with this film. It is a masterclass of how to do a biopic. I don’t normally like biopics but in the last twelve months, the two best films have both been biopics. Bohemian Rhapsody and First Man. Both very different films – both superb.

Do yourself a favour and watch this one!

No Longer Fit for Purpose!

So, if the MPs who voted against the deal now vote for the same deal because the PM will resign if they do then doesn’t that just show they were never voting on the merits of the deal in the first place, just for their own selfish ambitions. Once again MPS playing games with our lives for their own gains.

It’s about time we said that the whole political system is no longer fit for purpose. Let’s start a new hashtag to let them know!

Consciousness Cubed

Unlike the other poems in this collection, this is not a tale. Instead, it is a stream of consciousness. I let my thoughts flow wherever they wanted to go, however, it uses a very strict form, so I had to channel those thoughts within the gullies created by the structures.
