These are taken from my book Mis-steps and dances (which you can order here). Poetry being what it is, several have more than one layer of meaning, and may be about me or about people I have listened to - or invented.
I have recently (Nov 2016) published Metamorphosis: Poems of Transition (also available to order), and will add some of the poems to this site soon
