A wee while ago I was asked if I had any work that I could donate to an anthology raising money for Japan after the Tsunami. I didn't, so I wrote a couple of new poyums and sent them off. I never heard anything back so I expect they didn't get used.

Wince upon a tome there were tree squares. There was Dummy Square, there was Baddie Square, and there was little Maybe Square, and the wall lived in a cortege in the farwest.
