Three poems from Falstaff's Gut

I have just added a new page to the side bar on the right with three poems from my new collection, Falstaff's Gut. I hope you enjoy them. Please feel free to leave a comment with your response to the poems, if you wish.

I rather like the cover of the collection. The statue's head has a rather Falstaffian aspect, and the fact that it sits directly on the ground, as if the whole earth is his body, chimes nicely with the opening lines of the poem:

This man consumes the world,
digests it and transforms it
into flesh and blood and senses.
