How poetry happens
I was sitting with some of the usual LJ suspects after TransLondon tonight and someone mentioned my Ashleigh-related poem in progress; and I recited some of the bits of it I know. And a couple of people went very quiet - later I got a text from one of them about how they both had girls with chrysanthemum haircuts in their past...

And I texted back:

'Oh god
The girls,
Girls with chrysanthemum
hair. They break our hearts
a petal at a time.'

Which is, I think, a section of the poem on its own, and also reminds me that I should stick in some short sections between the long ones.
