Not long now, surely…Saving the Light (Tom McFadden) tells us
Spring is on the way.and we’ll all be outside, tucking into Haagen Dazs
alongside Geroge Saito,somewhere, oh I don’t know, perhaps overlooking
a Harbour Scene, sharing the view with Jack Little.
We could be looking for Charlie Baylis and his Mermaids, or even
The Witch, Her Book in Martha Street’s tale.However, given the English weather,
more likely we’ll be thinking Sarah Sibley’s got it right: The wind is a curse,
if not quite as bad as what Vuyelwa Carlin says concerning
a Rat in the Frosty Garden. But let’s get serious and discover
what Dorothy Yamamoto knows about A brief history of footwear.
Or should that be Surreal? Courtesy of Michael Henry, Je suis un mouchoir –
