Posted on Sun, 28 Jun 2020

I had no idea maggots were called gentles, that is so horrid!!! I like your idea very much of flies being funeral directors too, and their "efficient fervour" even sounds buzzy/busy

Enjoyed this very much! I had never thought of water "slouching"! Particularly liked "the stream is a gurgle" and "one more slurp" which create idea of movement and soiund. You have created a character out of this stream, it's great!

Posted on Sat, 27 Jun 2020

This is gorgeous! I don't

Posted on Mon, 08 Jun 2020
