There is a lot of work. I think I have some hope now of seeing some of it
into print as a collection and that after another's editorial eye has
looked at it. It's possible that an intelligent order can be found
I'm not helping you in the way that I am presenting the poems, partly,
largely, a consequence of the time I have to spend on them; and I have
more time for that than many.
A lot but not all of the short ones were composed in a narrow space of
time; and all of them have been written initially in time slices since
2006, when I returned from St Ives as a permanent base; but that was also
the start of more extended stays on Scilly.
So you are seeing them in, as a whole, disorder.
