is hard this weather,
sloping garden, heat
robin comes, alarming,
the nest nearby, we push

drag bags of cuttings,
look at the graves. rest

I had no intention of turning it into a memoir but was encouraged by well-meaning individuals (who do not know my mother) to do it. So now I'm back in the US, have copy and pasted the journal into a Word doc, worked on the first draft, now on the second and it's far from easy.
The hyped up emotions I went through in France now a distant memory, rewriting it is depressing me…Continue

the start of things, the making
of the welsh cape.
we have none here, we
have a blanket, washed
and faded. we started

While Philip was never a gay activist per se, he lived his life in a way that was a testament to gay pride and, perhaps more importantly, to a complete lack of shame around his sexuality.…Continue
