Comments about Jack Turner

  • Aaron Brown (11/28/2008 10:42:00 AM)

    Jack writes with fire and passion; the visceral might of the old masters is alive and pulsing within the syllables and phrases of his works.

    I stand in awe of what he produces. I wish I wrote as well as Jack.

Best Poem of Jack Turner

London Calling

London calling
it's smokers lungs bleating
in sharp consonants, lulling vowels
a mother's voice calling to her bosom
a pillow
in the City of Dreams

The wordless fields, speechless roads
gape and swallow like a hungry fish
The empty air echoes, taunts
and jeers

at night the small stone walls turn into brick
and pavements grow from grass
and orange faces peer red-eyed
through the dark

the twigs crack underfoot
brittle fingers like the lies
that keep me

and night time calls again

Read the full of London Calling


I bought you Roses
fresh ones, pretty, two dozen wrapped in silk
Carried them from the shop like a newborn
cradled gently in my arms

I bought you Roses
red ones, soft and tender like your lips
I dreamt of you and all your kisses
the flowers shaking with excitement in my hands
