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.
An overflow of nativities and perishings
Drag keen wits to brainsick days.
These lollygags are moments
In giddy assent.
This robotic cha-cha diva
Wish-fulfils us into hypnotics
But our guru’s battery is eternal.
