Biography of Denise Woodhouse

Born in Hampshire, I spent a chunk of my childhood in Malawi. I trained in visual display and exhibition design and have worked as a secretary, medical laboratory technician and freelance designer. My poems come from 'rootlessness' and the effect that clinical depression has on memory, sense of self. Updates

Sorrowful Road

This wet and grey bank holiday is so
At odds and so ordinary
A place to be with such
An exasperated man, whose
Burnt black heels, cracked crowsfeet,
Bare hands were obedient to
A day so harsh, uncaring,
That still the way we choose to breach
The shell we place too close
About his heart is to stamp on it.
