My stories


Retirement options for tube trains, #9 Staffordshire

Uttoxeter Tube Retreats The Perfect Romantic Getaway!

O tempora!

After the airport X-ray, my lungs feel lighter: the silver leaf of my alveoli has flaked away in the slipstream of neutrons.
Gold cherry

Retirement options for tube trains, #7, Foulness Island

the North Sea rolls out flat and silver like virgin tin foil.

The Bike

when the cracks of thoughts had filled with molten gold, and life’s pains had paused to freeze-frame static.

Goodbye, room

There’s damp on the ceiling of this room. It makes me feel uneasy to look it at. Sepia-coloured patches bloom outwards, or crisscross the white plaster like the roots of Japanese Knot Weed.
