The Dark Tower poem by John Snethen If I could show to you The Dark Tower wherein lies my own A wreath of gypsy moths and skull eyes round the tomb of no hope for tomorrow Though I would crack and shatter this morbid shadow of emotion This morbid shadow littered with emptiness yet no room for love The edges would be sharp enough to cut my flesh to the blood that flows And rivers of it would rain down and soak the ground where I soon to lie sleeping would fall
Driving North Wales poem by Robert Dana Off Anglesey the sea is blue and calm Beaumaris where the curious walk in ruins Herring gulls, a nose diving plastic kite Up the coast we stop for tea A pack of daws, wigged and black beaked flutters from the sea wall thieves and judges In the late afternoon, rare sunlight the water curls and flashes, crouched before it Looking out towards ruined Ireland listening to the English end their sentences with questions I hunt the shallows for flat smooth stones Behind me, the mountains fly their rags of cloud ...and in Welsh meadows, the cattle kneel down to promise rain


These are bounced cassette tape recordings of live performances of early works of mine performed between 1987 and 1991. The quality is rough, but it is a nice overview of pieces I wrote as a later undergraduate and early graduate student.
