After a long wait, the Poetry Bus mag is now out and I'm delighted to have a poem included in it, alongside some very established and internationally renowned poets.
And also on the bus's sometimes long and winding ramblings around the four corners of virtual earth, I've come to know a good number of not-so-established poets who religiously hop on and off every week. To be honest, many of these deserve greater recognition for their talents - some of the poetry that is produced on a weekly basis is just sublime and I'm delighted to be counted in as a fellow-traveller, even though my doggerel relies on a very loose definition of the word 'poetry.'.
Of course, there is one big flaw in the mag, as my fellow passengers would doubtless agree. The originator and most regular contributor to the bus, the driving force of the bus, the editor of the mag (and a fine beat poet to boot) Totalfeckineejit has decided out of some misguided modesty not to include one of his own masterpieces in the mag. I just hope peer pressure will cause him to rectify this decision for Issue 2.
