I toyed with this for a possible comp entry, but came to the conclusion that it broke almost every piece of advice that is given in the nowaday `how to write poetry` instructions.
(no rhyme, no `lovey dovey` no `repeat, repeat` `be concise, man, concise!`)
However I kid the grand-kids into reading it by
telling them that Elaine was a Groupie.

I believe that poetry is an important tool
in the armoury against the onset of mental
deterioration. The search for and the
selection of words to define feelings and set them in print is an essential exercise to keep the brain firing into
an alert old age.
This lady's story of a fight-back
against a medical condition is hugely
encouraging & the thought that poetry
has helped in her situation is sure to

To paraphrase an old adage:
"Nothing succeeds like excess".
I've seen "Top Gear" (various episodes) over
the years and while I saw bits of the 1st part
of the Patagonian special, I missed the 2nd
part completely due to other commitments.
The appeal of the format seems widespread
across the globe - even to those to claim to
be offended by its content and the behaviour
of its three main characters. May & Hammond
enjoy success in assorted TV programmes of
their own and certainly possess the expertise
(and "little boy" mindset that dwells in many of us) when faced with the unusual, the challenging or apparently even the downright impossible. All enterprises are guaranteed
moneyspinners and the BBC won't turn its
back on T.G. or its presenters in a hurry,
that's for sure.

Are funny old things

Shingles? Ah yes, I remember it well.
The creeping stinging rash from spine around
to chest - making itself painfully known and unwelcome!
The lingering caller from a long ago attack of
chicken pox, tis said..lurking in the spine -
like some alter ego evil princess waking for her wake up call!
You have to grin & bear it while it lasts as
treatment is limited to that which is caught
very early e.g. very rarely!!

The Christmas Party
Pull a cracker
enjoy corny joke
wear silly hat.
Spill vintage wine
tell a secret
no one knew.
Crimson red face
of the person
leaving so abruptly.
Perhaps they might
not come back
now common knowledge.

This depression of the emotional kind is well written.

Thanks very much for the feedback! See, I kind of preferred solidify, as it seemed to fit better with the numerous images about smoke. Definitely agree on the repetition of night, although the repetition of haze, hazy and hazel was intentional, I guess it didn't come across that way haha.
Thanks again for the feedback, truly appreciated :)
