Christopher Barnes’ first collection LOVEBITES is published by Chanticleer.  Each year he reads at Poetry Scotland’s Callender Poetry Weekend.  He also writes art criticism which has been published in Peel and Combustus magazines.


A blow-up gigolo,
In-the-raw, keeps one door ajar.
Elation’s treasure house
Is a pipe inhalation.
Mouldering and resurrection’s crossflow
Will seize levitation…
As our guru howls.
