Biography of Anthony Marriner

Grew up in a mining community before leaving home at 17 and discovering that I was entitled to know the arts! Spent time working in London and Liverpool absorbing as I went along. Early 20s entered the criminal justice field: mad, bad, sad, evil and tormented are not just the preserve of an artist.
Utterly eclectic in my tastes in all things: -failed painter and backroom writer, so I make no claim on poetry!
Love travel, philosophising and all things Italian. Married with one child. Updates

American Sky (Reworked)

Warm and dry Californian sky-
That first Spanish taste in Angeles’ glare
No zephyr to purge Downtown’s shadow.
Freed from the Valley’s crucible
Cocooned in air-con, going East to the West
To see America’s sky.

Mojave brightness caps light ochre soil,
Blue ever present, ruffled by haze
