Biography of Tom Sinclair
I have been a full-time writer since June 2014, I have in that time predominately written and performed poetry, this year I moved on to writing long form prose.
I have had my poetry published online by three separate entities.
Blue of Noon: A tumbler poetry page.
Émigré Publishing: A New York/London poetry/prose publisher.
I am not a silent poet: A Wordpress poetry page.
My first novel is in post-production and is due to be published before the end of this year (2016) by Baxter Daniels Ink Press, under the title “The Crazy Side of Normal” under my pen name of Tom Sinclair. It is a small American publishing house so the book will be available with a limited distribution on the west coast of America and via online - worldwide.
Tom Sinclair's Works:
Black white and Red: volumes one and Two
My first published collection is called
" A whole load of nothing and other heart warming tales"

Tom Sinclair Poems
Blankly it hits me That the simple truth That one day this sonofabitch will die That time peels away like the skin of a tangerine
The Autumn Of Our Youth
I am neither old nor young But somewhere in-between Lost wholly in the Autumn Of our youth, the graying of hair
So it’s World Poetry Day I’m still in France (A temporal migrant if you like) And the conservative party conference drones on
Two years ago I hit a new low Ironically five stories up Looking over the edge I had read that five was the magic number
Tough Guy/Teddy Bear
There are two things in the top pocket of my coat On this N15 night bus A pack of three BIC pens I've taken one out
I pick up five pence from the floor and bemoan the removal of one of my favourite skips Last night I stole a sealed kettle plug from a printer box outside a friends neighbours house Today I pontificate over how one person's trash is another's treasure While I walk into death
Streatham High Street
Muffin top overflows Green trousers A pram is pushed A pair of married beggars stops
So it’s World Poetry Day
I’m still in France
(A temporal migrant if you like)
And the conservative party conference drones on
I am surrounded by my privilege
Starting with being here
Having a passport that lets me be anywhere in Europe
For a time
