Swimming Around by John D. Robinson

‘Publish or perish’
said Bukowski
to Richmond:
and this isn’t no
Buk bullshit,
there is truth in
dive in, swim around
and stay afloat or
drown I guess
and fuck
my work is in a lot
of places, good and
bad but I can’t see
any life-boats
on the horizon
to save my
poetry ass.


John D Robinson is a UK poet: his work appears widely and frequently in the small press and online literary journals: He has published 4 chapbooks: ‘Looking Down Both Barrels’ with Adrian Manning is his latest publication.
