When I lived in Scotland one of my friends bought me a book by Ivor Cutler. In it were hilarious little poems/stories. When I came home, I showed it to my sisters and we got great mileage out of the poems' subversive wit. I still have that miniature book.
I was reminded of this when I started to look for outlets for some of my own tiny poems which are little scraps that make me laugh. But no editor has accepted them (not that I've really tried much - I'm a lazy submitter.)
Anyway, I found this site: Tiny Poems and thought, Yipee!! So I mailed the editor...but got no response. At all.
OK, I thought, I'll just post them on my own blog. So here we are. Tiny poem number one. (You might have to click on the pic to read it properly - camera issues...)
