My piece of flash fiction called A Walk in the Park, about Green Park Tube Station has now been unleashed on the public at the rather interesting project, Tube Flash, part of the Casket of Fictional Delights.  Have a look here:

Blue Notebook

Red leather bag rests on her thighs;
she takes out a burgundy leather notebook.
Tears out a black page, rests it on the cover,
scribbles on it with a silver calligraphy pen.

What mysteries? What thoughts, what hopes?
What dreams?

Milk
Potatoes
Carrots
Tetley Tea Bags
Water Filter
Crisps (Salt & Vinegar)

Another found object.  Aren’t ties crazy things to wear when you think about it?  I myself have a collection of ties I would never wear now: Spock, Q from Star Trek The Next Generation, Dastardly and Muttley.  Not ties to engender confidence in one’s professionalism I fear.

White Mice

Staring ahead
closing eyes sleepily,
leaning back against the filthy seat:
Hands crossed;
blue suit
white shirt.
Tie decorated with white mice,
sleeping
on cartoon cheese
(full of holes)
triangular,
nibbled.
