A collection of more than 50 comic, romantic and polemic poems, performance raps and ballads, brought together with more personal, spiritual pieces.

Themes include: Love in its many forms, Friendship, Seeking the self, Belief and Ecology.

Written while I was living in the English Black Country town of Stourbridge, and working at the specialist Glasshouse College and Glasshouse Arts Centre, the book is dedicated to that spirited, post-industrial community.
