Martin Rutley
Colourful Bar


Martin Rutley says of himself:

"I am 28 years old and live and work in Manchester, England.
I have been writing poetry for several years, and I am influenced largely by writers of the beat generation."

(The Poet's Biography in 2002)


"Diagonal Fiction"


The last of the scarecrow empires

These degenerates of Eden

Craving cowboy deformities

Easter clinics and aerosol flesh

Libido knifes for Christian vice

The dormant weapons of canine incest

Slashing photographs of punk revolutions

Of lunatic babies hooked on lipstick warfare

Of soldier killers and retribution brats

Swaying beneath autumn crowns

Dark noise glimpsed from the edge of the motherland

As Martian romances span sleeping civilisations

Diagonal fiction re-interpreted as deliverance.
