First post...dun dun DUNNNN


This is my first post. I've been writing and drawing a lot over the last year. Couldn't really decide what to do with it, so I'll be throwing up some poetry, drawings, photos and also general things that interest me on this. I'm working on some new music at the minute too. I'll put that up when I have it recorded.. whenever that actually happens.

The name of my blog comes from the Jack Kerouac poem "Bowery Blues" in case you were wondering.

Also, this is my new camera which I am VERY excited about. I'm waiting on the film to arrive right now, so I'll hopefully have some nice photos to post soon!

So here are two short poems of mine to get the ball rolling...

Winter Lasts Forever

It's been January all year
Suitcases full of snow
Abandoned everywhere we go
This city's humans are frozen to the spot
They'll never finish what they started
Foxes and mice run free
Barely noticing blue-lipped statues

Forest Sleep

I forget everything I want to forget
when I sleep in the forest
The cool grass under my feet
All my fears drain away
I carve a music box from fresh wood
It's twinklings make me smile
Because just for a while
I don't miss you

That's all for now.



  1. Good for you. Keep it up.

  2. Thanks a million! Great quote too, Kerouac's the man.
