“Poetry photographs parts of life and humanity,” Robbie says. He says other things too. Here’s a link to them.

Quelle Grammage!
Been mucking about with speech bubbles. Tonight's reading: poems from Saturday night's poetry and puppetry show + eulogy for the baker's husband on the back of the shortbread packet. Both beautiful & moving. "Stand strong soldier! The Power Jewel only charges once a day! Besides, the two of us are more than enough to deal with a single Ggrabbtargg goon without Lord Power's help!" heres the start of that odd poem i had published in #corditejournal - cordite dot org dot au if you wanna read it all
