  • the workshop
  • the blueprints
  • the coveralls
  • the boxes of parts
  • the welder
  • the nuts and bolts
  • the elbow grease
  • the prototype
  • the clips and straps
  • the backup ‘chute
  • the safety checks
  • the moment of truth
  • the burst of fire
  • the feet off the ground
  • the cheers and tears
  • the rocket man


reading poemcrazy, by susan wooldridge again is firing my brain off in surprising and interesting directions.
remembering a workshop i did at the school of life where writing poetry in list form was one of the exercises.
