  • My first printed book of poetry "One For The Road" is all about travel and journey, a collection representing work written over a 6 year period.

    Featuring Hopeless crushes in strange places, communications breakdowns, heartbreak, isolation, floods in Thailand, scams in Malaysia, wankers in Auckland, disillusionment in India, freaking out in the Sahara, and a stolen pith helmet in Nepal. We go from exotic adventure to facing up the economic disparities in the world.

    It's 22 individual stories on 60 pages, staple stitched with illustrations, all created and composed by the author.

    Also there's elephants in it. It's pretty good.

    Includes unlimited streaming of 06 Don't Ask Why via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

LEFT UNSAID


told you so
but I’m not gonna say
I told you so
and a guy walks into a bar and says
and it’s just like I always say
we got a saying back where I come from
and... you don’t say
and it’s all he-said she-said anyway
and said the spider to the fly
say What?
and said God to Jesus
and Christ said unto them
say it like you mean it
talk is cheap
and a word in anger
and a way of wording it
and say, this saying goes...
and
and
and...

the way, in which
I sat, waiting
for some, reason
or excuse, to approach
that girl, sitting there
in time, before
she got up, and left
the table, across
the room

from me

the chance, didn’t present
so the words, didn’t form
the girl, didn’t stay
long enough
for me
to
try

so now these words
stay here with me
not better left


(unsaid)
