For some time my beloved Emo has been urging me to put together a small chapbook as a way of getting my poems in order and as a first step towards marketing my skills (which he lovingly refers to as “talent”). No need to mention that I agreed right away and since then, I have been thinking of a title for that chapbook.
Finally, early this morning, as I was putting on my sunscreen, it dawned on me! It will be a “Sombre Chapbook”. (Are you able to see the subtle link that emerged in my mind – sun protection and the coming autumn?) I will put it together and “release” it in time for the autumn “fall of the leaf”, so that my poetry-loving friends may enjoy a small, but, I hope, precious addition to their melancholic Sunday afternoon readings.
Further news to be cast shortly (or, to borrow Adi’s expression [which has also been borrowed]): “earlier or later”.
