    Not keen on poems much.

    I used to write diaries,
    having heard lyrics that spoke
    to who I thought I was. (I wasn't)

    Came back a little wiser
    (certificates to prove it)
    and a little more adventurous
    for more worthy attempts (they weren't)

    Twenty something world
    spinning and gloating through immature language
    and a bit of Hammer Horror.
    Editors declined my invitation to join (they really did).

    Took advice and wrote out cheques
    (Support the independents).
    Flicked through the pages.

  2. I used to be Readin11, and it's great to have you back! This poem seems different from all your other poems for some reason. I think it might be because it doesn't have anything to do with a specific other person, but I don't know. I like how the thoughts seem sort of choppy and almost meloncholy. I always understand your stuff it seems.

    Hello! and thanks for the warm welcome...bit surprised actually!!:) :)

    This poem is different from the others. I've been experimenting! It's meant to be tongue in cheek. Being an amateur poet is so frustrating!:)

    this reminds me of Phillip Larkins sense of humour (which i like) we're studying him in lit. A very niftily created poem!
