I'm out of faith and in my cups
I contemplate such bitter stuff.

Many congrats Ray. I liked the lighthouse and the candle image. Very nice.

Cheers,

Tristan

Very good, Ray. I remember Sammy, I think.

Cheers

P.S. Do you ever send poems to Prole? It's a good magazine, and I think they would lap you up. They should.

Thanks, fellas. I've had 2 poems in Prole, I think. I have to say, I wish they didn't pay. I get embarrassed about refusing the money, which is only a couple of quid, anyway.

Well done, Ray.

An uncomfortable but compelling read.
