    THE NAKED SHOW



    The curtain went up,
    the lights were turned on,
    the audience gasped and quietness fell.
    There was I, in a chair.
    In my wheelchair, I was.
    Naked.
    Not a stitch on.
    The lights were in my face.
    I could not see the audience,
    but I could hear them.
    Voices were coming from everywhere,
    from the left, from the right,
    from the upstairs, from the front row.

    FROM A DREAM




    I come from

    the moon,

    a star,

    the sea,

    the waves,

    Mother and Father,

    love making,

    a little room by the seaside

    and from a dream.

    i've read your poems and they are stunningly beautiful and powerful. i have a milder form of cerebral palsy which means i feel like i am constantly on a seesaw between the disabled and the able world...I have started writing myself this year and this is one of my poems...it's called 'Torn'..

    A DOUBLE BRANDY



    Lynne. Fancy coming to The West End Saturday?
    I am fed up at work and Anne is doing my head in
    With this wedding.

    Elaine. I thought Anne was married.
    Of course, I want to go to The West End.
    Covent Garden again, Lynne?
    This place is packed with school kids.
