This collection presents the reader with 50 poems that will amuse, challenge, and occasionally frustrate them. \n\nRoy J Lloyd offers his own individual approach to the genre in a variety of styles. Whilst some of the poems appear deceptively simple, others may be seen as being wilfully obscure.\n\nCaptain Weird and other curious characters has been divided into two sections: 1990 to 1999, 2000 to 2009.\nThere are two longer poems in the collection, Half-Life and Transparent. \n\nHalf-Life is a semi-autobiographical work, punctuated with events from his own life and cultural encounters that have influenced his perception of the human condition. \n\nTransparent has a more complex nature. The religious or spiritual nature of the piece is merely implicit; ironic even. A complex web of ideas and opposing narratives are supported by a geographical scaffolding. \n\nRoy maintains that any meaning the reader attributes to a poem is just as relevant as any the author intended.
