Sobriety Is Complex 17/09/22

17/09/22 Not drinking is hard. Maybe for some it don’t bother so much. But for people like me, where it can consume them, it is bloody hard. I’ve been sober now over two and a half years.  I started drinking early in adolescence, and it was my main vice to escape issues I was too [...]

Typical

Bless you for giving a shit I never noticed that view before I never considered you before Something worthy to adore But now you poured Out all that heart Over all my flaws And still asked for that little bit more So naturally I’m rather infatuated But with all that love-spill, My own giving a [...]

Ms Ghost Station

I’m in King Cross’s womb Bumping down the disused  Tunnels Ready to slop out in the early hours All grey due to my recent surroundings I’m found in Slippery oil slicks, hi vis And darkness But I felt safe in there The air stuffed itself It gorged on bum fluff Supervisor huff, and  She churns [...]

Stage-a-Gwanin’ 17/07/2022

17/07/22 Eek, I am finally getting some opportunities to perform on stage!

Fruit Fly

I slam my hand against the wall Praying the little body will fall Then praying it’ll ascend above Because you can never kill with love I slam my fists against the wings Take from God his little things Then smush with tender touch Because you can never kill with love I slam my fingertips into [...]

Tit

You thought you were so stupid in that moment That you voiced yourself and were an embarrassment  That you got it all totally wrong And missed the glaring obviousness  That everyone else picked up on You kept a brave face, didn’t twitch Didn’t let the room know you had awareness of the slip You took [...]

Ode To My People 17/05/2022

17/05/2022 I’ve recorded the EP! FINALLY! My seven piece band and I spent the 16th and 17th of April in Satellite Studios, Enfield, securing our months of hard work into a fixed project that we can share with the world. I feel so proud, and so excited.  After going to an Orii Jam in Hackney [...]
