Inspired Drunkpo from Vizma
A few things about this work from Vizma...
1. Our posts crossed somewhere off the English coast. I wrote to tell Vizma how she'd inspired me. and then I got this haul from her, my first Vizma post!
2. I have read Vizma's poem to many, but the most significant group was the teenagers who came to celebrate New Years with us on the farm. There were four teenagers (18) and a couple of 20 year olds. They were all enraptured. You see the thing was I wanted to experiment with them creating DRUNKPO. And so we began. They wrote some good stuff and it wouldn't have flowed without New Years beverages (drinking age in the UK is 18) and Vizma's chop chop drunkpo. They are drunkpo neophytes now. More later.
3. I love the line 'leather shrinks in wet weather' because it reminds me of a line by a favourite band, Cake.
4. THAT ENVELOPE! Fabulous!
4. it's got just the right amount of everything!
THANK YOU. ~I love it all!
