A bit of a grandiose name for the small amount of poems and prose which I’ve had published here and there, but it’s a useful way for me to keep track of them, in chronological order. Many of these have appeared in an early iteration here on the blog, but the final (?) published version is always substantially different. This page will be updated regularly (well, if there’s anything to add…).
