Every day we find ourselves in many spaces - green fields, force fields, playing fields, battlefields, left field or right field - where the ground rules differ and it's important to stay aware of the differences. Likewise, these poems follow various rules - double dactyls, sonnets, ballads, haiku dragged out of word clouds, ghazals, riffs on particular obsessions, homophonic word games, serious observations disguised as humour (and vice versa). They are written from a joy in words and in a hope that they might be useful notes to our own fields of vision.
