THE LLAMA OF ABANDONED MEMORIES

As ever this has missed a number of readers – I’ve checked a few and once again it is not there! Are WP trying rid themselves I wonder?

In his later years he would tell whosoever cared to listen that the reason he came to settle upon this scabrous wrecking cape, the one that prods the North Atlantic to little avail was to seek his fortune out of kaolin and tin.Β  That that, long since, had not been the whole truth was lost to him in the befuddlement of old age.

These timeworn days of equivocal reminders pinned upon life’s groaning egress for safe keeping determined this one time logician now muddled desires with possibilities, fictions with exploits, pretty uniformed girls as something more than just his attentive carers.

    1. I think it is the new way they make me post things – never had a problem with the old way…even when setting up a poem and saving the draft all the verses merge and I find it hellish difficult to reorganize it! Why can’t things be easy!

      3. Mike, you’re hopeless… I should cultivate that attitude too πŸ™‚ As it is I get lumbered with doing all sorts of stuff I’d probably rather not… πŸ˜‰
