Renowned Peruvian composer Javier Jimmy Lopez, has decided to use one of my poems 'Incubus' in a 13 minute piece he is commissioning for the Tampere Biennale which will take place in Finland next year. I'm honoured and over the moon that he finds my work good enough to work with, he has a very impressive resume. check him out on these links.

Happy National Poetry Day UK



Cast from heaven, amongst the

fallen am I

Wings clipped, unable to fly.

A demon cursed  

in lust and arrogance well versed


So ‘neath gibbous moon as substance

that can be called shadow.

I hunt the scent of innocence.

A loathsome lothario dancing on the wind

delivering desire to those yet to be sinned.


Calling on you in your sleep

expect not foreplay, nor kindness,

nor kissing, or anything deep.

Just a hint of pleasure

and pain to make you weep.


From a dead skin mask

I’ll watch with hemlock eyes,

enduring the rapture of  alluring thighs

…for a little while at least…

until libidinous in the extreme

ready to join in toxic waltz

cometh the beast.


I’ll enter and take dominion over you

mouldering, mephitic breath hardens

thrusting deep in your mind

nightmares pumping as you

become one with my kind.


Palpitating breast heaves as

Hells inferno grips your soul

and your body looses control

throbbing with licentious greed

accepting the demon seed.


Withdrawn gasping for breath

I’ll leave you disturbed

Until you wake, as if from death

haunting memories will soon to fade

of the night of love with  a shade.

But do ye well, not to dismiss it

as nothing more than a bad dream

everything is not as it may seem


For after nine months your womb

junket filled,

will give…

and my hideous progeny

be spilled

your nightmare… fulfilled.

Needless to say THAT'S been accomplished by the Beast, however we NOW know that the 'hideous progeny' has been recognized for what it is..thus, we, the re-awakened ,shall take dominion..
I'm saving this one..
Stupendous piece,

The world of universal deceit belongs to the incubus and his ilk. The lonely truth-teller will encounter betrayal from every false heart it encounters on life's journey. Aside from this weighty dismay in humanity, Incubus is an accomplished poem, like Dennis Wheatley turned poet. Cheers, kenny
