Delighted, as ever, to work with Nick Dormand again, and to have our collaboration printed in a glossy book. I do recommend these, cheap enough if grabbing as an offer (there are always offers) but would be too expensive to get in larger numbers, I guess.

A ‘53 phase II could

have a top to put
down, composing in the passing air as if
on a long poet’s stride.

Independence would be in the
suspension of disbelief – because it simply was –
and rack and pinion

steering like a flight of
poetic feathers on the thrust of wings:
STC’s journey to the divine.

I could persevere for ‘light entertainment’ – and there’s no harm in that – but I don’t think it can ultimately rise to this. I rest my case:

I’m actually making a real pie for lunch, and that is much more interesting!
