1 The constraints: 1) No more than
one hour. 2) No more than 20 lines.
The result ? Genius or Not.

I sang my scales and threw things
in Tescos –
Nuts mainly.
I’m down with Ziggy:
You don’t eat
when you’ve lived too long.
It turned dumb heads
but I stayed
When I got home,
I stabbed myself
with a fork
and told everyone
to shut up.
(The Gaelic music was too cheerful)
It hurt a bit.
I won’t do that again.
Ink and bruises
aren’t always
for show.

Loneliness, Madness, Shopping, Ziggy Stardust
