Download the ‘Dragon in Post’ Press Release.
A brush with reality. Words and I have flirted, courted, married and divorced; made love, made war and made peace…
‘Dragon in Post’ is a collection of poems and illustrations dealing with people and their relationship with power. The illustrations add yet another dimension, underscoring, but not defining the meaning of the poem. The title poem ‘Dragon in Post’ wonders how or why identical influences can be used for creation or destruction. The sufferers blame the blessed, and the blessed ignore the sufferers. ‘One man’s truth becomes another man’s lies.
Power is an enormously emotive subject. It heals, wounds, creates and destroys. Desire for it conspires against peace, and taints any search for an understanding of our place in the cosmos. For many of us, there is more to life than our systems dictate. And we like to say so.
Be one of two things,
An obvious broom –
Or a fish that sings’
