Poetry loves me.

I don’t want to sound big headed
but if I can’t jump and down about this here
where can I?

I won the Peter Dix poetry prize

So yes.
Am happy.
And music practical went super super super.
And the Kings of Leon are great.

It is a very good day.

    You have pleased the Muse so much
    They considered you laureate as such
    I don’t know you that much
    But I agree with a crown such.


    I’m tagging you! Heather tagged me to write a post that starts with “Roses are red…”, you can check it out. I’ve tagged three and you’re one of them.
