The Launch

By | 22 June 2001

Since I am in Australia I have to talk, talk, talk and all I
see is not people but parties, parties, parties.
– Fay Weldon on promotional tour

The real profits went to the
publishers not the authors who
got tired and lost their smiles
and voices and the attending starving poets
were eating pat's and drinking
expensive wines and
became patently aware that their future
lied not in heavenly dark verse
but in devilishly light prose
