So Far, So Small

Here are the eighty poems that I have written so far. Not all of them have been put online – partly because I had overestimated how many people would be online today so it was looking a little like I was spamming Twitter and Tumblr (especially when IFTTT decided to catch up on twenty messages in the space of a minute!). The other reason is that I want to keep a few back so that if I decide to make these into a collection not all of them will be old news and there will be a few surprises and treats tucked away inside.
