Inside Out




Taut skin

Belly button sinking.


Who are you?


I feel that you –


cannot really be there


inside me.


I don’t want to be turned inside out.


Have you got anything to do with me?




Will I cease to be real


when you are born?

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
