Look by R.M. Francis February 7, 2012

Posted by vscorpiozine in New Poets.


at her
as she bleats
with new wise shoes.
We never knew her.
She runs with her trolley,
with her stumble strut pacing
through the wires and flickering lights
flexing to fix and solder the frayed.


  R.M. Francis is a poet living in Leeds. He grew up in Stourbridge in The Black Country and studied English Literature at Portsmouth University. His work expresses urban dystopia, modern folk tales and the swamps of the mundane. He creates short narratives, where the reader is put into an uncanny realm where ideas of sexuality, memory and self are set upon a violent mortician’s table. He establishes himself as writer who constantly undermines our socialised notions of fixed time and fixed identity and questions the idea of following and leading through his stories. He is inspired by Burroughs, Whitman, Rimbaud, TS Eliot and Blake. He has had work published in Inclement, Fire, Spokes, Message in a Bottle, The Journal, Decanto and Burning Houses.
