The “Potcake Chapbook” series is named for the dogs of the Bahamas and the Caribbean – strays that live off the burnt scrapings of cooking pots. The poems in the series are a mixed bunch – but the potcake of our logo wears a
bow tie to show that he and all the poems are formal. These poems are memorable in part because they rhyme and scan, as all truly memorable poetry does. We subscribe to the use of form, no matter how formless the times in which we live.

Houses and Homes Forever – Potcake Chapbook 8

A house, or a flat or apartment–we move in with expectations, hopes and dreams… we live with realities, difficulties, problems… and we look back
and reflect on it with nostalgia, gratitude. A home is part of who we are.
