  1. “Not come back.” If only! Survived a dose of sepsis. Writing again. Best wishes Rose, John.

    this aristocrat’s a creature of ascendancy
    red-jewelled, attracted by oblivion,
    she struggles on
    dreams by day, lies by night

    her husband’s suicide
    such a lot of commotion
    for a man of less than monkish virtue

    she’s the mistress of horology
    perfectly un-islamic,
    a troubadour
    of old

    and the war has now begun
    and will end in the holy city
    of Jerusalem
    and many will burn their eyes
    before she is done, or dies.
