His reading was flat, distinterested. The gist of what he did get across
did not leave an impression. He wore a red-shirt that I didn't like.

He wore a nice dark-blue jacket.

I liked her leather jacket, the way she spoke, she made the poems
crackle...and she made me smile.

Poor Lawrence. Still smarting over that email?

Words, mostly. But nice bright ones, arranged in the right order, and
spoken so that I could understand them and the poems they sat in. They made
me feel as if I was at an event, rather than watch someone recite: they
engaged with me and made me happy. If you want detailed analysis, look at
the webpage.

More than that, and at this distance, I can't remember. Some of us have
jobs to do.

ur, because he read fast, and she was plain dull.

#  Why?

I would have liked to hear him read.

#  *
#  And then Roger Day wrote _Maybe not total rubbish - just mostly_

I gave up the will to live at this point.

#  Diana bless

May the Althorp go with you.

but only if you're really bored.
