Algo Poetry-Behind the Lines

Fragment #8- Dinosaur Envy

In the liminal spaces between poetry collections, I will be periodically posting previously unpublished hand written fragments.

These works are some of the copious couplets and isolated ideas that did not turn into full form poems, but that you may find resonance with. I wanted to highlight where even the embryonic nature of two lines of rhyme can come from and maybe what full works they were influenced by or would go on to influence.

Today’s offering is “Dinosaur Envy”- a deliciously ironic dirge about dinosaurs being unaware of their impending extinction, influenced by the same train of thought from “Escalation Hypothesis” that I blogged about Here! last week, with today’s piece not making the final cut for “Unreconciled Doors”.

Imagine the dominant species of a planet thinking that they are invincible and can do what they want with their planet, whilst out in space, a comically drawn asteroid and the universe has other ideas.Just imagine!.

I am delighted to say that my first collection, Be.aGaIN, has been released globally on Apple Books.

It’s available from it’s very first day of release for a very special price, and it is thrilling to think that my poetry is available on this platform in so many countries
