HI Isobel Thanks for the comment. I started this one off at a workshop recently and all the young 'uns didn't have a clue about why the sheets were chilly. Spoiled rotten they are with their CH and double glazing.

I thought it might be, the metaphysical is such a wonderful area to explore. And I'm so with you on the paper copies. I started my paper anthology before I ever put a poem to type and I've lost enough computer files along the way to continue with it.

I think it is great that you inspired Graham to write a poem Ann. I read this second and expected it to be of a very sexual nature. It was interesting to see just how different it was to Grahams. I like the different take on it. Incubus here is loneliness - invading your body and consciousness with all the force that a lover might. I found it very sad - I guess ashes might refer to the kind of loneliness that comes only with bereavement. There is much to admire in the poem. I like the 'gritty dry-eyed morning' line - a great opener.
I think it might have been a good idea not to mention the word loneliness and to express it otherwise - the invasion of emptiness if you like...
I enjoyed this cos it made me think and was a very different take on a subject matter. xx

No one line jumps out at me in this poem but I like the images you evoke with the whole poem - one can definitely see what you are painting. I like the idea of you as a well being drawn up and your hands being bound in prayer. I think you could have worked on it some more. I would get rid of the 'for hardly one second' line for instance. It seems a bit conversational in a poem that needs to ooze with sexuality.

Thanks for the link Banksy - it took me to a big beige tartan shopping trolley eventually - couldn't get the exact link you gave me cos it was no longer there. Please note that I only wear bright red tartan so you will have to do better than that - I would need a trolley that matched my mini skirt and high heels...

ps Only joking about the high heels - I wear flats with a mini skirt - boots normally - high heels would look a bit common - even for me...

Hi Y'awl - well, I'm glad it's not just me - I was reading in the papers lately just what a national treasure our public parks are & I thought "bollocks" - as you do. Hyde Park & Regents Park (say) are indeed very pleasant - but they bear no relation to the industrial wastelands that pass for parks oop north eh ?
Isobel - look what I've found - the Chav's version !

I really like this piece Ann. The last three lines are really snap the whole piece shut, like waking up. It's interesting that you have balanced the sexual nature of the incubus with the loneliness analogy.

Heather, I've been away for several days and am only just getting back into the loop. I enjoyed your comments on my last two pieces, especially 'the little leaf'. Perhaps this poem is too close to the metaphysical, like fairy tales, fables and myths whose real value lie in their undercurrent of life teachings. That 'little leaf' was an instant idea and a great effort to capture. Your bio sure shows a lot in common with my background. Save ALL your stuff in hard copy too; paper might yet outlive electricity. Runes in stone are a bit over the top. :)
