English syllabic poet Mark Antony Owen writes about that world where the countryside bleeds into what we think of as suburbia – a world he calls ‘subruria’.


Mark applies a dark filter to his subrural experiences, building economic poems around small details.


His poems shift, unchronologically, from the personal to the general, recollection to observation; each poem written in one of nine self-developed forms, sometimes with variations.


Mark lives and writes in subrural East Hampshire.
