In light of the massive impact that COVID19 has had on everyone it seems rather incongruous to share my latest activity... However, things seem to be shuffling back to normal again so... or so we thought!


The print version of Cºuntrycide will see light of day in December 2021. The first recording of 'Cºuntrycide' (is still available to hear here)

The Butterfly House debut album is still available to buy here and of course in the meantime you can pick up a copy of 'Sunflower eclipse over Troia Nova' from the SBP website... here!


And the final news is that the poetry event due at Desire Books & Records, on Saturday 26th June has had to be postponed due to another COVID-19 lockdown in Sydney

I'll keep you posted on the revised date. In the meantime, stay safe.

Sydney - July 2021



I write, because I have to. If I didn't write, god knows where I'd be and what I would have done.


Although I've got a pretty good idea.

Happy days




AF, January 2021



Waves washing over

waves washing over 

sinew, it’s in you

It’s always in you


The wake trailing after

wake trailing after

it is what you do

not what I choose


the vibrations of dogblack day

resonate crash hesitate

on the precipice 

at the edge of this


walk alone

walk alone

you are on your own

forever on your own


the contract of dogblack day





the yearn for dogblack day


      the moment

slightly closer

December 2019

New words...
