alone-2666433_1920If I say what I think, I make you all cross.

If you say what you think, your face lights up.

Why, then, I think, should we not all say what we think?

I think it, but I don’t say it.

To say what I think would make everyone cross.

Crowds of people, lit faces all blurred into one.

One big mass of crossness

So, I think, but I don’t say anything.

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.
