Named with affection after The Divine Comedy, The Mundane Comedy uses the terza rima form of Dante’s epic to document a year of my life—detailing big current events, intimate everyday happenings and the tired rope bridge of opinion that naturally forms between the two. As the subject matter partially relates to the coming of my first child, I have had to keep it under wraps leading up to the magic twelve week hump where most expecting parents choose to tell the world. While most of the poems will deal with the time leading up to his/her arrival, other poems may be political, philosophical, deep, shallow, scientific, spiritual or perhaps a bit daft. The project runs from September 1st 2011 to August 31st 2012. While I can’t promise a poem every single day, I will endevour to post new work as frequently as possible. If you enjoy any of the poems, please feel free to leave a comment or tell someone else about it.
