Between Empires is a collection of poems composed in 2002 while travelling through the USA, the UK and Germany, and first published online in 2003.

In 2012, as part of a burst of reissues, I re-edited and compiled the book, splitting it into two parts: Peace Falls (concerned chiefly with the USA) and Forever Wende (preoccupied mainly with Germany).

At the same time, I produced a ‘full’ version of the collection, which for some reason I never published. Until now.
