Coming Together in Verse (Coming Together, 2015)

‘Coming Together: In Verse’ is a collection of erotic poetry and risqué verse edited by Ashley R Lister. I’m delighted to have contributed two poems to this anthology, ‘Servitude’ and ‘Hymn in praise of a dominatrix’. Sales proceeds benefit Hope for Paws. Erica Jong said, “Poetry is what we turn to in the most emotional moments of our lives – when a beloved friend dies, when a baby is born, when we fall in love.” Wallace Stevens said, “A poet looks at the world the way a man looks at a woman.” Edgar Allan Poe said, “Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.” Most of us agree, when it comes to expressing passion, there is nothing more effective than poetry. Authors contributing to ‘Coming Together: In Verse’ comprise: Ashley R Lister, Alessia Brio, Victoria Blisse, Rachel Woe, Janine Ashbless, Liz Honeywell, AJ Chilson, Roy Clements, Katy J, Ashe Barker, Lisa Bower, PJ Bayliss, Geneva Rose, Jay Willowbay, Slave Nano, Lily Harlem, Kay Jaybee, KD Grace, Norbert Gora, IG Fredrick, Jade A Waters, Adrea Kore, Bella Settarr, Okami No Koga, Daniel Davis, Joanna Harrington-Cruise, Sophia Sophia, Le Petite Mortimer, Eleanor Meadows, Angell Brooks, L Hollamby, Blacksilk, CA Bell, Ian Jade, Tamsin Flowers, Ruby Red, Colin Davies, Desmond Field, Rachel McGladdery.

A perfect combination. I SO enjoyed this collection of poetry, it was hard and soft, shocking and gentle, a perfect collection of verse to sit and enjoy with a coffee on a rainy winter day – oh and all proceeds go to charity, even better!  5 stars

This is a great collection and profits go to a good cause This is a great collection and profits go to a good cause. There’s a huge variety in the way the writers have approached things, from the witty and whimsical to the salacious and shameless. If you’re of an open mind, give it a read, you’ll be moved by some of the works, laugh at others and will probably learn things from a few of them! 5 stars
