Now Then…

Today I had some brilliant news!  I am going to have two poems published in the Sheffield magazine “Now Then”.  I nearly peed my pants.  The two humble offerings they chose for their April edition are as follows…

Spring loaded

I can’t deny that all it takes

Is one clear look at you

And it’s one hundred plastic cowboy hats

And my heart buckaroos


A Reminder 

The key scratch marks around the door

From a drunken night a year before

When you tried to use your key not mine

When our limbs and bricks were that entwined

A reminder of my heart’s complaint

Strange hieroglyphs scored into paint


In addition to recognition for my scribbles I have made another two t-shirts (“But when does she sleep?” I hear you cry…Behind every great woman is a great Pickle…)  One was for the Half Man Half Biscuit gig I went to a few weeks ago, which I proudly sported under my coat for most of the night as I was a chilly one… 

  I’m a bogus official…don’t let me in…

And the other was for a Smiths tribute band that me, Mrs Armitage and Lily Elf went to at the weekend…it was wizard… 

Note to self: Must stop spraying all of my clothes with bleach…

  3. I got a nice e-mail about this post telling me all about it; but I now realise I have missed several more because I got no notification. I wonder why this is?
