Shamelessly Marbellous

Shamelessly, I practise my plies at the bus stop.
Shamelessly, shameless, I sing ‘Tired of Sleeping’ in the shower.
Not ashamed of anything, I dress in old lady’s attire: brown floral blouse, salmon pink tights, and comfy white shoes from Clarks.
Shamelessly, I laugh at all the shams out there.
‘What a shame,’ they say. ‘She’s losing her marbles!’
Shamelessly, I steal my children’s marble collection,
and I start to play.
Rolling on with the marbles, endlessly and shamelessly.

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
