I like this one Rob. What a mis-spent youth you must have led - I'm envious.

It makes me think of a Louis Theroux TV programme, you capture the same sense of kitch/seediness/menace.

I really like the threadbare carpet line.
I'm not sure the title is as strong as the poem though. The Wasted Oasis would seem to do it more justice!

Thanks. I've made a few more revisions to it this morning and will probably post it out later today.

Colin, in my mis-spent youth I made a lot of the wrong kind of mistakes, and wish I had made more awful ones of a kind I'd only pretend to regret now.

Apprentice, Wasted Oasis? That sounds like it could be a poem...

Cailleach said...

darn here too! I hate missing things

You've probably missed less than you think!

But if anyone wants a copy, send me an email (address at my profile), and I'll post you the poem.
