How to use this site

Chaos and Matter is a collection of my poetry. The HOME page is the latest poem, currently being edited (if you click on the title of the work, you can leave your contribution as comments) with the chronological page navigation that goes back several years.

Poems may be written in the moment, often forgoing an edit. Once a poem ages, their life is recycled and edited in Collections which eventually are formalised as Books. Once a poem is published in a book, it can no longer be edited or moved. Them are the rules.

The poems attempt to place a kaleidoscope of doubt over vivid imagery, thought-provoking metaphors, productive introspection, the exploration of the strange. Floating ideas that do not settle like rain on a warm day or a bird lost at sea where random surreal dualities twist the mechanisms of language.

The latest poem in a work in progress. You may leave messages of encouragement or scorn here or on my Facebook group.
The current state and history of edits are only available for the work in progress. Before it becomes part of a Collection. Your comments may influence the formation of seven poetry books which stack up.
