Obvious, delightful and subtle
When I was very small,
My Nanna told me....
not to wear patterns with patterns....
Though patterns appear quite naturally and beautifully together.
My minutiae mania upsets the order
Laryngitis has rendered me unable to speak for more than a week, ad two different antibiotics
When my voice comes back, husky as it will be,
I am going to sing these songs
Loudly, with a Joplin gravel
and relish it.
