An extra poem

I have unearthed another Lithopoema from 2010 called on being eaten. I had forgotten about it, mainly because I had revised it as plain ‘free verse’ in order to include it in a submitted collection. However, having conducted an interview with writer Sam Snoek-Brown in which he mentioned Sarah Rose Etter’s Husband Feeding, I remembered […]

Final poems added

Today I have added the final three poems in this project. This will now become a static site, in effect an archive of the Lithopoesis project as it stood in 2010. I will leave links to here on my other ongoing web site and poetry blog. I would like to thank everyone who has ‘followed’ […]

New Poems added

Today I have added I belong to you and Phoenix. Not long to go before this archive is complete.

I must apologise for the glacial slowness with which I am migrating these lithopoemai from the obsolete site to this – other priorities have intervened and interfered. I have had to stop and think about […]


Thank you for your patience. It will take time to migrate the contents of my old Lithpoesis site to this one – so many irons in the fire. M.
