about

Anglo-Saxon verse sometimes imagines an inanimate object speaking, a key, an onion, the cross on which Jesus was crucified... This poem, in Old English metre, imagines the thoughts of the housepost - the essential stapol on which the house rests.

This is for all those upon whom others depend.

about

Math Jones London, UK

London born and based, I've been writing on and off my whole life - mythologies, rituals, stories, divinations, - much of it as a pagan.

Poetry is an expanding of the lungs, air igniting into blood, condensing into words, breathed out to revive another.

You can find me performing throughout London, but contact me here - I'd love that.
