Winner of the Prole Pamphlet Competition, 2020.

Still Lives With Apocalypse is one of those rare, wry, clever collections that strolls confidently into the reader's mind and settles down like it belongs there. There is humour here, and a neon light illuminated bareness of the soul that tricks you into thinking you are somewhere else: the States, perhaps; or drowning in river or walking on water with bloody palms. These coherent poems that have you bedding down for the long haul, leaving you wishing there was more.
