JOHN SWEET

Biographical Sketch

john sweet, 35, married, 2 sons, 3 cats. not a believer in poetry, or in god. civil servant by day, righter of minor wrongs by night, weekends and holidays off. literary influences include pollock, tanguy, low, burma, 500, richter. writing is both catharsis and addiction. the need to scrape each moment down to bone. the need to define the world outside, or the one inside. beauty, which can only be defined by the presence of ugliness. which can be destroyed a million different ways. the need to remember this.
