Thank you, InDaily
Last year (19 and 21 November) I read a few poems on Cath Kenneally's Writers' Radio program (digital radio, online and 101.5FM).
I've just noticed that the podcast is now available to download from the website
Here's a direct link to the podcast.
I start around the 20-minute mark.
I am surprised, pleased and very grateful: my poem 'I will not mourn you' is Friendly Street Poets poem of the month for April.

Mayday Mayday, it's Rescue Tuesday!
I rescued this week's piece from My Life in Advertising by Claude C Hopkins (p 205) and The sea by John Banville (p 143).
Summer afternoon pocketing thunderous idleness in the dark.
ghosts of desire sitting in pitch-dark intensity
deprive primal intensity;
balls for breakfast
conscious phantoms lurch
from joy to grey
approve to disreputable
filled fingers to wanton waste,
picture-house main feature to forgotten poverty.
