Tuesday in June



I have gotten over my despair and the floodgates have opened.  Three new poems written, as what is a bird without a wing and a poet without a song? One is about the bird I saw, the second is about the exploration of the self growing older and the last one is about caffeine and love. 

I bought the Spring and Summer issues of The Moth in Easons in Navan over the last couple of weeks.  It's such a lovely magazine and I think it's fantastic that you can buy it in Easons.  There are never any decent writing magazines to buy in big bookshops.  I really like Niamh Boyce's poem Mr Grey Hair, Yellow Teeth, Finish Me and She'll be glad... by Paul Keenan in the Spring issue.  I have to read the Summer one properly yet. 

What else, oh I got the latest issue of Riposte in the post and Tommy Murray has a good poem in that.  I can't find it now, wonder where I put it.  I also want to revise some older poems that are slightly edgy and stylistic.  I'm not going to change them much, just make them more refined and mature.

  1. Caffeine and love, I like the sound of that. Glad you're up again, and most productive by the sound of it.
