We’re good at it,

    Liquid literature like a John Barnes dribble yet lapidary like Gary Snyder.

What a smart Lamb , pity about ‘is grammer. ‘ Don’t you take my muvver’s muvver’s name in vain mate !’

    Sometimes a quick pass is indistinguishable
    from a dribble, and likewise a haiku may be
    an epigraph by any other name. The birds are singing.
    What kinds of birds are singing ? Please do not suggest that the sound of a nightingale is similar to that of a crow. Vive la Difference ! (a la Derrida). We love this poem because it is not a poem, because it pretends to be a poem and yet it says it is not a poem – it is a poem which is not a poem and yet it declares itself not to be so. The audacity of the author is equalled by the author’s temerity in suggesting that a spurious reference to the current capitalistic world cup routine and it’s relationship to capitalism as currently operative within parts of South London should generate sufficient interest to warrant a critique of these blithely yet oh so selectively, dare we say, strategically placed words claiming a meaning only vouchsafed in the minds of those who believe that they have actually read this actual critique and understand what the author is saying.
