What Do You Want   Things I've Written   Books I'm In   Who I Am   

Hi! I'm a writer. Mostly it's fiction. You can find stories of mine here, books that I'm in here, and you can see me fail to engage appropriately with social media over there. Ask or tweet or whatever for queries.

Black Chronicles II

The African Choir were a group of young South African singers that toured Britain between 1891 and 1893. They were formed to raise funds for a Christian school in their home country and performed for Queen Victoria. At some point during their stay, they visited the studio of the London Stereoscopic Company to have group and individual portraits made on plate-glass negatives.

In an attempt to contribute to the ongoing process of redressing the historical absence of black people, London’s Rivington Place Gallery is putting on these very photographs, unseen for 120 years, as a central part of their new exhibition, Black Chronicles II.

Larkin - Wants

Wants 
Beyond all this, the wish to be alone 
However the sky grows dark with invitation cards 
However we follow the printed directions of sex 
However the family is photographed under the flagstaff
Beyond all this, the wish to be alone.

Beneath it all, desire of oblivion runs: 
Despite the artful tensions of the calendar, 
The life insurance, the tabled fertility rites 
The costly aversion of the eyes from death—- 
Beneath it all, desire of oblivion runs.

Utter bullshit that Mansfield Park doesn’t end with Fanny and Mary hooking up.
