Sometimes, looking at things from a sideways angle is helpful...

Thursday, 5 April 2012


So, I'm making a bit of a chapbook of poems I like. I thought for people whose hands I can't thrust it into, I should make a blog post with a link to all the poems, and keep it updated. The former task is easy, the latter harder. Thanks to Saira for inspiring me to collect poems (and starting the collection), Craig for making me decide to go ahead with it, and Hel for wanting to see them!
