Sorry, folks, but a few hours after posting this poem, I received an email reminding me that it was about to be published in Trespass Magazine. I had somehow forgotten to note that acceptance down in my files, and thought the poem was okay to post up. Apologies to Trespass, I've removed it now.
Ho-hum. I'll find a replacement once I'm back from the dentist. Assuming I ever come back from the dentist, that is.
