JERUSALEM

I will not cease from Mental Fight,

Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand:

Till we have built Jerusalem,

In England's green & pleasant Land.

William Blake

JERUSALEM.jpg

In the mid-eighties, I started to work on a project called Nothing Doing In King's Cross, which was really a fusion of real life London at the time, featuring a 16 - year old unemployed black girl named Murphy who lived next door to a 4-year old named Emily, who was in fact God. I changed the name to Jerusalem and got a handful of stories printed in Crisis and Heartbreak Hotel, then in 1989 I moved to Brooklyn, and the project's setting started to feel insincere as I no longer lived in London.

So I stopped.
