Back cover text:

A poetic soap-opera where ancient mermaidens meet Glaswegian winos in a world that can only be described as doomed. This collection of poems ranges from dystopian visions of modern day London in 'Strange Lights over Bexleyheath', lust-driven nostalgia in 'Sligo Maid', to a sombre walk through Glasgow in 'In the Necropolis'. A manifestation of verse set in the past, present and future, this collection acts as both a tribute and parody to the literary greats as well as being a provocative read in its own right.
