    Cabin Fever


    Steam escapes from tears the dream of the sleep punk those guitar solos based on choruses lull me to lullaby absence my participation on the edge  of the plantation of easy guilt trying to keep safe in the attacking air dry in the angered rainfall as water percolates from the eaves roads that meander through the forest and around its scraped-out mines its quarried foreheaded depressions also leak and leach generously  they’ve left a few trees standing  in the meadow to remind us of trees the mirage of a cared-for landscape the deception of orderly lifestyles  the ludicrousness of plans...

    Bryn Yemm in India AmeriCymru: Hi Bryn and many thanks for agreeing to this interview. When did you first start singing  and when did you realise that this was to be your future? Bryn: As an adopted little boy in Abergavenny Wales the family who took me in were a  Salvation Army family and I spent all my formative years being raised in the Sunday School, Sunday morning and afternoon. So the bands and songsters  awoke in me  a chance to sing. I tried also to learn the cornet, but due to lack of practice I soon lost interest. I was very young and wanted to be down...

    A Wedding


    Near-deserted lanes mid way up low hills  the sodden escarpments of unfashionable zones unvisited by most who know of their existence in this interlude when a shadow cajoles our attention the damp hushed houses of this year’s departed dust on shelves weeds between paving slabs awaiting tidying up and reinvigoration and the lengthy sigh of a decision reached (starling darlings lingering watch unwatched) among the personal effects in those corners  not accessed in a period compromised  by the seizing up of bones  and the disorder of failing and forgetfulness an antique from the top of a...
