"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


Anthony tends to fidget with his thoughts in the hope of laying them to rest. He has managed to lay them in a number of literary magazines including The Faircloth Review, The Pygmy Giant, Shot Glass Journal, Turbulence, Underground, The Bohemyth, Torrid Literature Journal and The Rusty Nail, amongst others.

Anthony Ward


Allegretto from the Seventh

I can sense the heaviness
Crushing him into a box,
Buried alive in himself,
Expelling all emptiness,
Unable to breathe,
Suffocated by his own density,
The pressure building and building
As he expands beyond his body,
No longer confined.
