My micropoem featured in Standard Issue

‘Picnic’ a tiny poem I wrote for Manchester Review‘s 2014 micropoem competition (it came second) has received a delicious write-up in Hazel Burke’s poetry column at Standard Issue magazine.

The best treats come as surprises.  Do have a read of Hazel’s column and dive into Standard Issue.

    Hi S***,

    Wasps are busily building a nest in a corner close to the back parking opposite the block A entrance. Got any PiffPaff?

    This recent email of mine remined me of your micro poem.

    1. Ha! Hope the wasps clear off soon. I was thinking of ants rather than wasps but they could equally be bees…… or, indeed, UK citizens…. Thanks for reading and commenting ! 🙂 xx
