firstly, this is a lovely title... there's a level of angst but it's the thread of thoughts and images conveyed with such economy of words - the truly wonderful 'A beautiful profile, opened/and closed its flickering lids as it passed away' that...

Posted on Sun, 07 Jun 2015

this is a wonder, l.w... i think the level of detachment (if that makes any sense) is ultimately all the more expressive - the lists of observations - in conveying a level of feeling and a balance between different places/points in journeys

Posted on Sun, 24 May 2015

aw i enjoyed reading some of your prose! this had lots of personality, a quiet sadness, liked the layered possibilities of a disappearance and return at such a time 'the day after the end of the world' and i liked little attentive touches like...
