Xerox Sonnets & X-Ray Blues

Neil Sparkes
paperback due Nov 2019



Xerox Sonnets & X-Ray Blues is a full length book of poetry by Neil Sparkes. Part of a trilogy of works in poetry & artwork titled Return Of The Demons, written through visions / dreams / nightmares as a dub soundtrack pounded out in resistance to the rise of the Far Right.

Snapshots, fury, desolation & betrayal by the sham of politics - Sparkes invokes the mutant-spirit of John Locke, Thomas More, John Berryman & the sonnet remixed with a 13 bar-blues to create a 21st century theory-of-mind in dub & visual poems.

The Magna Carta Suite, which forms a section of the work, was first published as a ltd. edition pamphlet (inc. prints by the author + The Magna Carta Suite CD by Alex Hutton feat. Neil Sparkes) in 2015 by Hesterglock Press; marking Sparkes' collaboration with artist & poet Sarer Scotthorne. 

“Beware those who walk on cloven feet....”
