home Attempts at poetry: 1980 - 1984

  • The Victims is a piece of doggerel I used to recite to the nouveau beats at The Troubadour Coffee House in Earls' Court, London around 1981. It was subsequently published in an anthology.

  • Miriam Beadle is the first piece of my verse ever published by an American literary journal.

  • Blue Rhapsody is a piece of verse that was published in an anthology long after I gave up all pretensions to being a poet.
