i will have my revenge on the bastard tree that broke the neck of albert camus

life after godhood

the old man & the traffic island

the last man

born in derry 24 years ago, darran is a poet and 'drinker of note' whose writing overflows with cathartic revolutionary ardor.  when he's not plotting to blow up language he subverts it to unique purposes.  unsettled and unsettling.  he is determined to bring down the idols of irish lit & expose the populace to imagery & syntax whose roots are as much in europe, russia and the usa as here. 

he has written essays on Gunter Grass, Brendan Behan, Richard Brautigan, Hart Crane, Ambrose Bierce, Matsuo Basho, Federico Garcia Lorca, Nikolai Gogol and Miguel de Unamuno.  he has two collections of unpublished writing: a series of lyrical poems, Songs from the Banks of the Ebro Delta and a more experimental poetry collection, Sail by the Frozen Stars

his poetry has been published in the Tennessee journal Hard Luck (Warm Angel Whiskey). he has translated poems by Osip Mandelstam and Jakob Von Hoddis 'for a future journal on poets murdered under totalitarian governments.'

He once won the Guardian Haiku prize for a piece on George Orwell.

he currently lives in belfast. 

his poems can be found in our poetry section.
