Most pleased to have the first of three found prose poems here today. Thank you Ian.
NB [This is later in the day]: Having written the poem posted a little while ago, and having taught and examined the book ‘Of Mice and Men’ for many, many years, I have just read the poem in situ and realised [appalling, embarrassing moment] that it should read ‘Curley’s wife’, not ‘Candy’!! How the hell did I make that mistake – and not see it?? Anyway, have asked editor Ian to change if he can.
NB [later again]: It has been changed. I could erase all of the above, but won’t! Perhaps it will remind me to pay attention…
