A Very Fine Solution (The Ending)

Looking through old (very old) stuff, I noticed I didn't post the ending of A Very Fine Solution. Well ten years later (almost) I have. Of course, maybe you should read parts one to ten first. Or not, what care I? Image is royalty free from Pixabay

One thing you will

Posted on Thu, 06 Jul 2017

find by doing this, is that your description in any prose you do write will be tighter, more compact, more effective, it's something I was told would happen if I wrote more poetry. I'm not completely sure it has for me, but it will for you....

It's the mothballs

I remember, and the faint smell of Lion pee and Turkish Delight.... hahaha. I do not know anyone who has never explored their parents' wardrobe. When I was 8, my dad's wardrobe had hundreds of football programmes from the 40's and 50's; Rangers...

One or two things. Incognito is one word.
Kirk is almost exclusively used for Church in the Church of Scotland. Your priest(s) are Catholics, I presume, since they practise the rite of Exorcism. 

I like the idea of the stories being...

I wonder

what the playground chants are now... we used to parrot chants about Ho Chi Minh, with no clue where Vietnam was. This has that kind of hypnotic rhythm. Cleverly done.

Nice

to see a dialect word in a poem (jitty) if we don't use them they'll die out. For those of a Yorkshire persuasion it's a ginnel, and if you're Jockinese (like me), it's a close.

Lots to Enjoy

It's worrying

It's funny

Posted on Thu, 07 Jun 2018

if you'd asked me 10 years ago about the cathartic benefits of writing, I'd have laughed in your face. How wrong can one be? I suppose the point is it enables you (me, one etc.) to take your feelings outside and examine them, turning them over to...
