RAE DESMOND JONES 
Oceans 

Meanwhile from the front room my daughter Has picked up her recorder & has been playing For 40 minutes - for the first time in years – The sound fills the house in which I sit In front of a computer praying as I do regularly To the great God GOOGLE but despite all that I am swept away on the sweet sound as it rises & falls with the slow sombre weight of an ocean Breaking, breaking, breaking

RAE DESMOND JONES 
Not Just Gen – it - alia

To be just one thing is boring: The two fisted boozing bloke, A pouting swaying babe – Most interesting is a bit of both – A woman who can fight, (but does so with control) & men who write good poetry Do not sit down to pee
