An unusual poem - like the subject matter cos it's different and so very true. I'm not so sure I can link the title to the theme though.

Like the play on the word intimate and strengh of mumbles and the whole innocent/guilty theme.

One thing I can't take to in your poetry is the use of & - to me it just seems unpoetic - a bit like something I'd expect in a IT document. Hope you don't mind me saying that - better to have a genuine comment than a wooly one, in my opinion!

Cate, thanks for your comments on my poems.That's just the kind of criticism I like to hear.If I were more skilful I'd be able to blend poetry into the narrative seamlessly, but as you say, it's too prosaic in parts.

I would say those are quite ominous musings - you haven't just read the Rapture by any chance?
I like your ideas - as you say, nothing lasts forever, not even our sun... man is just an insignificant grain of sand in the universe ... a cheery thought for a Sunday morning! xx

Ta for your comments, Anthony. The Mad History thing is part of a spoof series on mental illness. Sometimes it's hard to overtrump the facts and I've had at least one person take the Egyptian story at face value!
