Thank you all for your continued comments and emails about this poem – I had no idea at all what was in store when I wrote it, only that the first line had been haunting me for months. Sometimes a Wild God has opened strange doors for me, and continues to have a life of its own. Something seems to have happened that is far beyond my understanding, and that is exactly as it should be. Poetry is a form of magic, and don’t let anyone tell you anything different. This word-spell will hopefully now reach more people than ever, and stray far beyond the internet.
We'll post these out to anywhere in the world!
Note: We can send this poster out folded once across the middle, to keep postage costs down - sending it rolled in a tube is also an option at the checkout, but is a bit pricier at the Post Office, so maybe combine it with some books too or order a few posters at once to save money.
It does sometimes take a few days to get these dispatched, especially at busy times of year. If you need your order for a birthday or similar, let us know and we'll do our very best to get it to you in time...
