- A Modern Ozymandias
Original Date: Some time in 2000, I thinkLast Updated: Wed Apr 24 2013 19:52 BSTA tribute and a respectful parody of P. B. Shelley's poem "Ozymandias". The poem grew from the first and last verses and eventually met in the middle. For bonus points, spot the Terry Pratchett reference.
- Fractured Logics
Original Date: January 2006Last Updated: Wed Apr 24 2013 19:52 BSTA fractured logic could be one in which there are islands of provably true and untrue statements seperated by deep rivers of the unprovably true and unprovably untrue, surrounded by a vast sea of the meaningless.
This is a kind of love song without a tune. It has an accompaniment described by the colour of streetlights reflecting off snowdrifts in the north of England at around 2am.
- What the Blind Man Sees
Original Date: Early August 2006Last Updated: Wed Apr 24 2013 19:52 BSTA uncharacteristically optimistic and social poem; probably because it was co-written with and based on an idea by Ser.

- Northern Brown Argus

Original Date: Early 2002Last Updated: Wed Apr 24 2013 19:52 BSTA memory of being someone's monster. An early piece, so has rough edges.
Original Date: November 2004Last Updated: Wed Apr 24 2013 19:52 BSTA manifesto for human-computer and human-human interaction; an accidental prophecy; an accurate nonsense; a memo and a memory.

- The Cave of Sleep (from Metamorphoses XI)
Original Date: April 2002Last Updated: Wed Apr 24 2013 19:52 BSTNot so much a translation as a cinematic paraphrase of an extract from the story of Ceyx and Alcyone in Ovid's Metamorphoses XI. Doesn't really do the original justice.
