It seems I overlooked to mention that my prose poem lines written on the train between Himeji and Shirahama was published in Transnational Literature (Vol 8 No 2) back in May. Some poems take a long time to happen. This one was begun in 2008 as a very short story, rejected several times, and rewritten as a prose-poem before being accepted. Transnational Literature is published by Flinders University in South Australia. It’s a great journal (not least because they’ve accepted quite a few of my poems and short stories over the past few years!)
