"Among the World Addressed"

 "English Wounds:
an autobiography southwards" 

Draft only

(publication date 2012


"English Wounds" will  consist of about sixty poems toward Fox's autobiography "southwards" which is his 'history' of England, derived in his own life in Wessex. The autobiography is a selective history of wounds given and received supporting an argument for defining nation and race as nested identities manipulated by elite power blocs, usually comprised of a few clans, that arise and forcefully dominate and consume the socio-economic benison produced within geographic and cultural constructs.

"The Charred Lord:
an autobiography eastwards"

(publication date 2015)


"The Charred Lord" is the 550 line, 13 part poem, that is the crux of a volume of about thirty visionary poems  The opening 19 lines of the crux are published here. It is not a poem about the war, nor does it protest a poet's innocence; Fox is not innocent. It is a poem -

involved with an unspeakably colourful person
whose mouth ate with speech
the kiss that ached between us

[from The Charred Lord Part XI]

This space that (is) between us is bridged by a rope of words stretching between the ends of cognition and re-cognition in the form of a cyberspatial grammar dispersed between the letters that comprise their occupation of (this) space. Here the face and font of you is merely a front for the fount of space occupying nothing less than the territory of your words and their letters, their sightings of sounds among the space of their relations.  The draft "Theory of Relationality and Solidity" is found under "House of Stone".

"Lost in America:
The Charred Lord's Anthem to the Wall

an autobiography westwards"

Draft only

(publication date 2013)


"Lost in America" consists of about seventy poems oriented westwards on the cusp of William Blake's revolutionary agonizing and naive hopes for a state freed from the chains of greed, servility and religion, given crude expression in his poem "America".  It adopts the failure of William Pitt the Elder's perspicacious attempt to keep the "Thirteen" in the British Empire and their bloody separation into a New England aspiring to Tom Paine's high moral plain selectively combined with a social order claimed to be new but sustaining the old order as if a new order.  What came of it bore all the crude hallmarks of the old and, even to the middle of the 20th century, self-evidently carried slavery in its breast, a massive failure of heart in regard to all men being created equal that eventually required open surgery under the political knife of President Lyndon Johnson in the 1960s.

Play park bride.
