A lot of people quietly write poetry. In fact, I believe that, for anyone who wants to create anything more imaginative than a shopping list, there is no better way of practising selecting and rejecting words, thinking about precise meanings, and packing significance into what you write, than trying to write a poem, however bad it may be. It should be included in all media training courses.
How pompous is that? And how foolish and self-indulgent to put any of these five-finger exercises on show.
But it’s my website, and I can put what I like on it.
So I have.
