CHEATING

I can't know her
from the body, skin, or curve:
the perfume cheats
like the sacred hymns chanted
in hope, and there's no answer

Hello R K,
I hope all is very well with you. Good luck with the book launch. The cover is really smart. I know the contents will be too.
I haven't had any submissions from you for Poetry 2010, you're more than welcome to send a couple. All selected poems will be available in a free to print format at the end of the year 2010. Already some good poems from many diverse sources.
A man has just walked down the street shouting that the water is to be cut off for the next 15 hours. I guess I'll just have to drink my whisky neat ;)
All the best,
Gwilym
