  1. I'm sure I already posted a comment here... Switching to this new comments system has not been without its problems...

    But yeah, I'd been hesitating about whether to post this poem for a few weeks. I'm not really sure about it. It was part of a larger experiment which kind of morphed into smaller poems. I'll keep working on a couple of the others and may post them at some stage.

  2. Once again I'm in (reluctant) agreement with Louis Vuitton (I think).

    Very tight this one, Stu, you salty dog.

    One is put in mind of the saying, "Who's counting?"

    This is a girl who would have something to keep in her designer handbag, at least.

  3. Haha... I think I'll leave the spam comment to retain the context.

    I think you're probably right about the girl. I'm not sure if I've been called a 'salty dog' before. Oh look, on second thoughts, I probably have...
