i'm becoming cranky, nasty, bitter
and perpetually, sweetly, deviously, sarcastic
do i watch out zealously to find in others
faults i cringe to see in me?
the thing is, you need a window, and a lot of blinds
and scattering of ventilators
and a couple of doors that can be opened from the outside
some NMI's? without ma and with baribe far away,
there are no more NMI's


  1. Not enough sunshine in Edinburgh.

    What is NMI?

  2. Hi Cranky,

    Whats with this sudden moodiness? Cranky, or not, your poetry's gr8. And pardon me the 'dehati' but whats a NMI?
