Chosen by WatchWords in their “quest for the literary stars of tomorrow as recommended by the literary stars of today”, David Mark Williams was noticed for “the originality of his voice and quirky insights” that characterise his debut collection of poetry, The Odd Sock Exchange.
From the intriguing title piece, the tone is set for a collection that will challenge, entertain, and surprise. Honed, accessible and brimming with mischief, there is also a dark thread and serious attention to life in this finely tuned debut.
It’s time to end the yearning
an odd sock stirs,
to bring things to a close,
to trust that what you’re looking for
is waiting for you here. (The Odd Sock Exchange)
