Author and Publisher. I work in academic publishing. I live in London and am currently writing my second novel. I can be contacted at @gurdeepmattu and and would especially like to hear from literary agents interested in representing my work.

Impossible Love

Impossible Love

Impossible love –
Is the sticking pin;
Is the stick or twist;
Is the way of things.

Impossible things
Are struck through with this;
Are struck through the bliss, the
Blossom dead on a whim.

Tonight, I might stay up all night
And do the things I want to.
I’ve forgotten all of myself to you.
You can keep the memories
How you wish to.

Succour, and yet —

Controversial I know but I get the sense that Arcade Fire fans enjoy the Waitrose like safety of their multi-instrumental Simple Minds-lite angst whilst being reassured that the edges of the songs remains smooth and reassuringly competent. They're the John Lewis of stadium rock.
