Oh yes, they do like a frog

Posted on Fri, 19 Jun 2020

Ha. Yes, I have read that

Posted on Fri, 19 Jun 2020

Ha. Yes, I have read that about herons. They stab something repeatedly, fish floats dead, down the hatch. They also swallow small mammals head first so that they swallow with the direction that the fur lies. There's a name for it, but I can't...

'But forget to grab my heart

Leaving it in the living room
Where it fibrillates weakly'

Some wonderful lines in this, I really felt them. Particularly these. Made me sigh. You must go back in and retrieve it. Rachel :)

I have been back to read this

Posted on Sun, 10 May 2020
