Inside the poetry: Charlie Weeks – Nightlighting

Charlie Weeks is a freelancer from Brooklyn, NY. Like many writers, Weeks is analysing the world he lives in, he believes it “is akin to the Industrial Revolution, but at a speed we have never seen before”. As a result of this, Weeks poetry is a methodic and melodic narrative on the modern world. Weeks believes he is “trying to synthesise [his] close observations of living in New York City and the scenes and people [he] observe[s], but also in processing how [he] feel[s] about it in reaction based on [his] own personal past and present experiences”.

It’s hard to think that Weeks doesn’t believe himself to be a poet. Yet he follows this up with “unexpected things seem to happen when you follow the muse”. Something all aspiring writers could remember.
