Stomach Cancer

I sometimes feel like deaths mother; carrying the child of death within me; feeling it suckle on my strength; waiting to bear my own oblivion; the...

Courage

Ultrasound sees into me; X-rays examine me; CT scans dissect me but none of them sees the courage I need to face this cancer growing; that, only I...

​I can't give you any advice

Posted on Tue, 14 Feb 2017

​I can't give you any advice but I hope that praise will do. Its a memorable, beautiful and poignant poem that addresses a feeling about modern life that I completely understand and share. Its why I hope ideas like faith and magic can survive the...

Posted on Sun, 10 Jun 2018

Yes. It is quite a common name. I looked in the phonebook and there are 12 other Terence Oblongs or perhaps just 1 Terence oblong with 12 different phone numbers but I wouldn't change the name if I were you; it has an heir of nobility about it...

Posted on Fri, 13 Apr 2018

You mean they've stolen land

Posted on Thu, 29 Mar 2018
