Madhouse Musings

Madhouse Musings is a current project in verse dedicated to the one and only Rudyard Kipling. The language is meant to be reminiscent of Kipling’s Barrack Room Ballads, and the concept was conceived in while I convalesced in a mental health clinic where, for a solid week, the Ballads were the only actual reading material I had access to. The pocket-sized book with its yellowing pages and advanced age quite literally disintegrated as I read and re-read the verse within.
