Cardinal Cox has been writing and publishing poetry in the small press for over 25 years.

 

He has worked as poet-in-residence of a local cemetery and in the civil service. His poetry performances are legendary in and around his fenland base. He has contributed to a series of Lovecraftian pamphlets, including Codex Lilith (2014), the 99th in the series, that imagines a witch-cult within the Lovecraftian world and with references to Bewitched, Buffy, Charmed, and The Wicker Man). He is is currently poet-in-residence of The Dracula Society.

‘Edge Rows’ is from a series commissioned to accompany the exhibition UnEarthed (which marked the 150th anniversary of the death of John Clare) that was exhibited in galleries in Helpston, Northampton and Peterborough. It appeared in a pamphlet of the same name this year.
