rainbow nation

Posted on Sun, 25 Nov 2018

Almost makes you look forward to getting old! I like your newer approach to poetry a lot more Richard, although I must be far behind. You write a lot it's hard to keep up! &&

an american dream

Posted on Tue, 09 Oct 2018

Always wondered what the women are up to in those fashion shops in & out the change rooms all the time carting clothes and stuff around ... So in fact it all turns out actually very mundane.
