4 Poems by Albert Kirk Jr

Poetry, Punk Noir Magazine

Albert Kirk Jr has been writing poetry since 2020. He is from Ayrshire in Scotland, which means that he is contractually obliged to mention “heaven-taught ploughman” Robert Burns. Like Burns, Albert was born in a two-roomed clay and thatch cottage; unlike Burns, Albert has never considered being an overseer in a sugar plantation, and nor is he a high-ranking freemason. Albert’s favourite poet is William Topaz McGonagall.
