Released September 21st, 2022
Purchase: Amazon | Publisher | Waterstones
From reflections on mental health, to unabashed love poems, to modern mal du siècle, Apocrypha collects poems previously published between 2006-2014. Culled from a wide array of journals, websites and exhibitions throughout Ireland, the UK and the USA, this collection tracks the development of a "quirky, singular voice which sets the writer apart from the standing army of Irish poets" (Poetry Ireland Review). Dardis's poetry cut to the chase, finding moods and sentiments at the core of our existence that we don't always want to admit to, yet must possess in order to survive.
