The Bazaar / Of Spaces and Shelves and Sacrifice
« on: August 19, 2011, 02:46:29 PM »
Doing a giveaway with some of the books that I'm clearing out of my brother and sister's flat- this might be more relevant for those living in the UK or Europe (unless you don't mind paying shipping or if the book is really light).

This list is on my blog page, I've written more information there. Here is a direct link to the entry:

Am linking this everywhere, will update thread with new post when I post the second list of books.

Brush and Quill / Nuri Poetry
« on: August 02, 2011, 01:07:56 PM »
Hola! I was flipping through the "whats haps" thread and reading the posts about hospitals. Thought I would post a poem I wrote that is (kind of) relevant. I write a lot of poetry but don't post many of them online anymore but I think I need some critique! Or any comments will do, really. :)

The Waiting Room

This must be the smell of blood
clean and crimson blood

my tiny comrades
are crying:

we all know the secret
the clock, its face
clinical- white:

oh, we know.

On my side I burn
my core is cold
my hide is fire
that smell

that bitter fog of blood
whose blood?
then it is certain

I will die.
I will suffer.
I will die.

the face clicks its tongue
tsk, tsk, tsk
clear- hard

over piercing terror
it knows our fear,
and we know its reproach

but her hand is on my head
cool and wonderful
and full of hope,
my hope

a name is called, twice
someone leaves us
my eyes close

in me there is Death
he fills the void, he floods it
no stranger here, no friend
passing to some End

I wait.

The Bazaar / "Beloved" World Book Night
« on: June 15, 2011, 12:46:25 PM »

So earlier on this year I was selected as a "giver" for World Book Night 2011. They delivered me about 42 copies of Toni Morrison's novel "Beloved" to give away for free as part of their programme to spread the pleasures of contemporary literature. Anyway, I've been giving out my copies at a relatively consistent rate and I still have quite a few left (more than ten copies) before my duty is done!

So if there's anybody here who wants a (free) copy of "Beloved", just post here or send me a PM! I'll pay for the shipping and all that, won't hurt my wallet much as long as those of you across the pond don't mind waiting a few weeks for your copy. Wasn't quite sure where else to make this topic, figure this would be a good place to start. :)

EDIT: I'll be sure to make a new post when I do run out of books to give!
