Listening intently to
concerto's of banality
in bars of depravity
listening intently to
dribbling's of a want to
be intellectual
child prodigies
wasted history
listening intently to
extensive vocabulary no
depth of morality
self deluded
listening intently to
facial contrition's
contorting omissions
revelling in notoriety
listening Intently to
delusions of acceptance
dismissing dismisser's as
unworthy adversaries
listening intently to
failures of a failure
unimpressively endeavouring to



My name Is Stephen John Miles (SMiles) live in Barrow in Furness Cumbria England, I'm 53 diagnosed dyslexic at 47. Found my written voice once diagnosed and have been shouting ever since. I've a self published children's book Zac's leather elephant and a published children's book The fox the owl and the big green towel, I have a new children's book coming out later this year called Book of Zac. The books are published by Austin Macaulay. I made stories up to entertain my children all rhyming this led to the books. My break in poetry came after a friend of mine died and I wrote a poem for his funeral. Two years ago I appeared at the Bloomsbury festival in London. I write beat poems as it works well with my dyslexia. Something I feel strongly about is self expression after feeling excluded for so long. I'm not for everyone but then not everyone's for me so that makes us even.
