Flowering Off the Chrome is a collection of symbolic poetic projections into the rural landscape. Removed from the urban sprawl, set during midsummer and narrated through a series of dramatic monologues, Hughes has created a rich sequence of see-sawing yarns about the comings and goings on a farm he knew as a child. Looking back through the eyes of an old man who chose to remain and work the land.

Death Rattle is an honest kaleidoscopic portrayal of the isolation, joy and abandonment that beats within the city’s restless heart. It is a trilogy comprising of poems, narratives, lyrics and aphorisms, where the duality of the city and the rural fuse.Through choice encounters, flinty wit, ruthless reasoning and solemn reflection, Hughes casts a wistful eye upon the menagerie of the city.
