The man in the moon
Played me a tune
He played it to me daily
He played me a tune
On a contra-bassoon
And half a ukelele
occasional creativity in a bloke-shaped package

This is the blog of a woman who is seriously on the edge and I mean right ON the edge…no, not there… just a little bit further… further than that…no, further still…just a tiny bit more… just move slightly to the right a little…no, that’s too much…just move a tad to the left…that’s right, just there…now you’ve moved too far to the left… Damn, what part of the ‘on the edge’ do you not understand? Oh, and her matricidal boy genius, come devil spawn.

Thanks Maria! It’s fascinating what different cultures make of the moon, from the religious, to the symbolic, to the psychological (werewolves), to the ridiculous (eg that it’s made of cheese). Great source material for us poet-types! 🙂
Very nice and lyrical!
