    Ah yes. I had to look up ‘defenestration’ when I first read the poem and again today. I don’t know why. I’ve often thought of throwing you out a window.

    Just kidding. It’s a great poem. Click.

    My mind works in mysterious ways – especially first thing in the morning. For some reason I read ‘Spillwords’ as Spillikins – and thought the poem was going to be about the game where folk try to carefully pick up a load of little sticks which have been dropped.
    Funnily enough – the poem turned out to be kind-of about something along those lines – something/lots of little things being dropped and hard to pick up again.
    Funny old life.
