recent awards

July 11th, 2013 — 3:25pm

Inchiki is unlikely to speak about his numerous awards and recognitions but i think i should advertise them here, if only to provide a little assurance to that visitor who feels any whisker of doubt about the merit of the poems collected here.

Instances of Inchiki’s recognition in the world:

Inchiki’s first applause was heard one lonely night when the rain suddenly fell on the tin roof of the old house he was staying in.

He has brought tears to the eyes of sunflowers and snowdrops at the dawn, after sharing long nights of poetry together.

Once when Inchiki read a poem to the moon, it became slightly more swollen, then hid its face behind a cloud.

A wind has showered small white petals from apple trees, which fell over Inchiki’s shoulder and onto a page of poems; an accolade of a kind.

Grasshoppers and cicadas have briefly stopped their shrieking to listen to Inchiki’s poems on several occasions.

When writing poems using ordinary pens, Inchiki sometimes finds they stop working from the raw power of the emotion flowing through them. Inchiki now more often uses pencil than biro.

The sun shines a little hotter when Inchiki composes erotic rhyme, as shewn by the increasd moisture on his brow.

Inchiki says poems not written under his name and submitted by others have won awards, but is too shy to give details of his exact role in authorship.

Inchiki cannot read his own poems from earlier years as they burn his eyes and leave the taste of mercury on his tongue.

Poems by Inchiki and etched on gold discs have been flung to the farthest corners of foreign universes, so it is told.


These are just a few instances of high praise which I have drawn from my personal experience with Inchiki, no doubt there are more.

poetry for sale

July 1st, 2013 — 3:11pm

I have done some work looking around the market, and have arrived at a price tag for my poetry. I am not normally a commercial poet, but have decided to open the front door of my mind to those who wish to speculate in my work. So, based on the researches i have undertaken, looking at particular examples elsewhere such as in the art world, and also considering the fact that poems encapsulate things like eternity which are notoriously expensive, i am tentatively ready to put an actual dollar price on my poetry.

I have determined that a medium length poem of mine may be purchased from me, fresh from my mind, for:

USD $32,000

Note that under certain conditions i may be willing to accept alternative items of value such as bullion, diamonds, narcotics, love, blood, tears (in vials), ancient currencies, ashes of poems recently burnt, pure sensation, or bat wings (ethically obtained).

Interested buyers can contact me through inchiki’s bio page to make arrangements. Note that all poems thus purchased will automatically be released into the public domain as per the ethic expressed elsewhere on this site.
