The Dogs of Humanity (Fly On The Wall Press, 2019)
The collection champions the downtrodden, the bullied, the scorned, the misunderstood, while also pointing a finger to those who mistreat others. These are poems of hurt, of empathy and resilience, but most of all, of the want for a kinder world.

The poems on offer here explore questions of existence and identity, asking who we really are, and how we can possibly be.

left of soul (self published, 2010)
"Colin is a poet who displays hunger for understanding of himself and the world around him. His poetry display an ever present sense of hope through times of love, sadness, death and joy, while sprakling with humour, honesty, modesty, and a touch of the absurd."
