Author’s Note

Ekphrasis: from the Greek word for a written description of a work of art, produced as a rhetorical exercise. Here, I bend the definition around works of collage made earlier, which have inspired either a piece of short form fiction, or poetry. Occasionally, the link between the image and the writing will appear obscure. At other times, somewhat satisfyingly literal.

Recently, I have created ai images to illustrate stories and poems – a somewhat new venture.

What you read here, represents the penultimate draft before the writing goes to print. Therefore, it may not reflect exactly, when compared to the printed copy.
