My own poetry

Inspecting the Wounds
A selection of poems, most of them written a fair time ago.
The Sockets of Golgotha
Another selection, in three parts: The first seven days; The stations of the cross; the last words from the cross. It's worth pointing out that these aren't religious poems in any sense - they merely use part of my cultural (and personal) history.
Potted Philosophers
Light relief; a few clerihew-type sketches.


(with Andrea Christofidou) A small selection of translations from Kostas Karyotakis' 1921 book "Nepenthe".
Artificial Flowers
(with Andrea Christofidou) A selection of translations from the poetry of Kavafis.
