    Wonderfully observed and very rhythmic - and that last line is so powerful in its simplicity.

    Dear Philippa, And yes, I know that man, and he was me, and yes, my wife had just died, that is true. Very strong poem-what is behind someone we think of as the usual sort of drunk. so many stories, and I stand at the edge of this one, and wipe away tears. Phillip (Report)Reply

    This is good too. Nothing I've read of yours so far is at all trivial or inconsequential.
    Your timing is good, too.

    Yes, I liked this very much too Philippa. Loved the ending. Lovely rendition of an observation. You may want to amend line 8 (when you have a minute) from thought to though.
