    I presume 'Chris Ogunlowo' is an alias, right? Anyway, I think it's about time you got the credit you deserved. Having just read your biography -never normally read those- I can see that, sure enough, you are about 18 years old. Most of your work is a cut above what most people deliver on this site. Period. There are many people here who sing their own praises on a daily basis while you go about your business quietly. Your attitude to what you do is very healthy; you keep aiming high and are resilient. Great things are in store for you if you keep refining what you do and experimenting. You are the most natural talent I have ever read on this website, bar nobody.

    Brilliant, I love the choice of words. It's apt.

Best Poem of Graham Leese

Jungle High Retreat

I could sleep for trails
of silk in the wind
to carry us
through crystal sands with
nothing but stashed dreams and tinted
sunglasses, a strange blood orange stain.

The ghosts of long dead Victorians
can glow in gaslight
their children sepia like bones buried
long ago. In the hushed twilight lone sparrows
can guide me to heaven because the streams
lie stranded in the wake of angels.
