    • I was reading a chat of yours with Georgia a few days ago about a blog for short forms of poetry, which bans haiku because it’s soooo easy – meanwhile the blogger’s own examples of haiku were… disappointing. It usually takes a certain amount of craft to appreciate craft, don’t you find?

    Put on that long white dress, indeed. Mrawr! 🙂
