Portrait of an Editor

Portrait of the Editor

I, who belong to the realm of winged spirits,
Born of Devon heath and of the North Sea wind,
Both sleet-sorcerer and demon of stormy rocks,
Contemplate eternity and the dreams encircling eternity,
Upon the ash leaves on which I sleep.

(From Poem of a Delphic Night, published in Living Poets #6, October 1995)

I am a contaminated god,
A perverse aphorism,
And my verses smell of twisted marrow,
Spheres of virulent shame,
Insolent scum of wisdom.

(From Hoberon, published in Angel Exhaust Fifteen, Autumn 1997, Cambridge, UK)
