Uncomfortable Silence

Hooo-ahh! I’ve just had news that I got an Honorable Mention in a poetry competition (at Artella ) for this poem:

Uncomfortable Silence

This evening
Our thoughts
Are drawn
To the seams
Of our clothes
Like beetles to candle-butter

It’s the first time I’ve submitted a poem (well, I submitted two, but the other one didn’t get anywhere) and there you go. I feel good. Yeah! Oh, and if you want to find out more about Artella’s comps, you can read about them here.
