One poem again this post, and it's a work in progress. I'd be interested to know what you make of it.
reflection on a bad second marriage

think of it as a plane crash or a train wreck
any image where two complex mechanisms collide head on
no one will die but expect damage
do not underestimate it
this is a life changing event
you will be alone in the detritus
or if especially unlucky
the other will attempt to cling and suck out your life
you must devise your own escape method
find a path through the debris
you will get out eventually
try to do so with dignity

remember you need never visit this source of misery again
not even to write a poem
Here is the Albion Country Band-in their first and best incarnation.
On a less jaded note here's Liz Lawrence's video of the Bedroom Hero tour- the gimlet eyed amongst you may fleetingly clock me amidst the cast of thousands.
