Martin's book 'The Grave of Whispered Things' was published in 2008 by Lapwing press of Northern Ireland

In July 2015 Martin performed his poetry alongside Carol Ann Duffy in the Lamb And Flag, poetry pub in Worcester.




There was none of the silence he remembered:

The road, in spate, streamed through trees

Stripping the leaves of their rustling calm

And the thrush did not smash the snailed rockery

As it had that long-hydrangered summer.

   The place was changed and he sat, uncomfortable,

Until he heard footsteps on the path behind.


But when he turned there was no-ne there

And all the plants were withered.
