I love volunteering in

Posted on Tue, 04 Jan 2022

I love volunteering in charity shops. You meet the best people. It's lovely to read a poem that celebrates ordinary things, like having a natter.

Thank you both.  I'll leave it up.  I've made a few edits as suggested.  I guess I am little frustrated, like Kristal Licht! Cheers.

Everything she did for you,

Posted on Thu, 26 Mar 2015

Very strong characterisation

Hi Jem,

Hi Jem,

If it could have been longer, then I'd consider adding to the poem  - I'd definitely want to read it.  These things need saying.  You've personalised what seems almost to be a zeitgeist - sexual violence and misogyny feel like the...
