new old kid on the blog,
with an occasional
old or new poem written off
the old writer's block
The first thing I have read today. A beautiful image to carry me, as on a magic carpet, through another busy, glorious day.
Thanks, Jonathan--always room for one more.

This is lovely, Vassilis. Here the mouldy magic carpet of leaves has sunk to the ocean floor (i.e. the flooded streets), where it takes a fresh pounding with each successive storm. Nonetheless the melodious chant and the brilliant boy of wood have smoked me out into the thought of brighter days, hinted at in the lofty ascent of this poem to its happy ending. What has happened to happy endings, any more?Can it be they have all been baked magically into a daft elder's late-out-of-the-oven holiday pie?
Thanks so much Tom--your mention of happy endings moved me enough to pen this little ditty commemorating Greece's recent financial "victory".A Farewell to GrexitNo more alas in bankrupt Hellas—Money up the bunghole, adios morass!
