Poem: December 31, 2000

December 31, 2018


In a bus line

in the heart of the city,

in a hailstorm thrusting silver shards of icy glass

deep into the concrete earth,

a woman holds a little Japanese baby

the colour of Cadbury’s

Dairy Milk Chocolate.


Asleep in peace,

his little fingers wave in the air like

undulating undersea fronds.

Beneath the coloured threads and protective fibres

of his logoed rainsuit,

no fever shakes the young child’s bones,

no distrust disturbs the sleep of purity,

no threats or worries fly about

in his head so full of wonder and learning.


In this child’s dreams lies the promise

Of the new year.

Movie Posters Of 2018

December 27, 2018

The always reliable Creative Review has posted their list of the best movie posters of the year.

This is an excellent vehicle to publicise lesser-known films as well as more popular examples of modern design.

City boy to the core, I found myself drawn to this poster for L’Empereur de Paris which was previously unknown to me.
