Hexagonal Variations on a Circular Thought – the Process

Hexagonal Variations on a Circular Thought was written over a few years, between 2014 & 2017 and combines earlier poems of a similar theme with newer work. Final editing was provided by Ashley Capes at Close-Up Books.

The poem explores the interplay between the passage of time and memory, a fight between Old Man (or Father) Time and the present as a product of memories; that is, time as either linear and/or irrelevant, and memory as being the interpretation of fragments either ‘factual’ or ‘fictional’.
