Edward Calais


Biography of Edward Calais

I grew up in London after my family emigrated to the UK when I was 7. School and university in London. A career in training and development meant I wrote hardly at all, except training materials.

Poetry tugged at my elbow persistently, but I ignored her...until now! She has been a faithful shadow and I am grateful for her patience and persistence with me. The prodiagal poet is home.

Learning To Kill

I stood on the battlefield
Naked at five or six, goading,
Aiming, hurling up mighty sticks.
And then counting thuds
Of the fallen.

It was as if
I had not taken food before or since.
I stripped skin with my teeth
