Hello friends!

I hope that you are doing well.
As a lot of you know, I made a recent move and am settling in nicely, bar a stubborn cold that is outstaying its welcome.
I’ve been unpacking and found some old poems I wrote and thought it would be fun to share them with you. Here is the first one, I wrote this in 2003 apparently. Thank you past me for being so thorough.

In her head she’s screaming loud and clear
