One is always at home in one’s past…  

…born David Charles Kelly in Camden, raised & dragged under a car in Upminster, haunted by Heffah between Cranham & Ingatestone, met Saint Erkembode in Saint-Omer, found the Mimih in Leeds, low in Bow, lost my mother in Archway, worked for a museum in Bloomsbury, mudlarked along the Thames, lived in a tower called Landmark Heights & married & became David Charles Erkembode Kelly-Mancaux in Hackney & now find myself living beneath orchids & fish in Đà Nẵng…

& this is the Year of the Mimih.


not just another saint
