Word-of-mouth said it was interesting
the instructor lively
and the assignments not too onerous,
Italian Film Studies
just the sorbet between maths and physical chemistry.

Day one
“ ah welcome…..aah ..
… the Vice Chancellor … he …aah
he is …. not convinced this is … is a valid course …
has some doubts
the future is …

Most of my life has been spent on the bench, occasionally called into the game by extravagance or attenuation. Waiting has turned a loner into a recorder - nondescript and inconsequential, more not noticed than overlooked - the non-vantage point of children not yet considered old enough to understand. Orphaned Islands (Un)poetry is a lifetime of picking anecdotes up and not throwing them away. Stories collected like odds and ends placed in a box in the basement, the garage, the garden shed - uncertain as to what their use might be but knowing that one day there might be one.
