The first (‘God Has No-One to Talk To’) I began writing on a plane out of NYC … somewhere over Berlin perhaps.
This and the following two poems I made into a cycle, ‘I was here’.
I submitted them to Forth and within a week received that much awaited reply, offering to publish.
This cycle has marked a change in my poetic style – I used to think of rhyme as a limitation and something definitely not for me. I no longer think so.
