“What’s it going to be then, eh?”

— Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange

Andy Fleck reblogged this on sweettenorbull and commented:

Hi to all Sweettenorbull readers. After a long hiatus (mostly due to the birth of my daughter), I am blogging again over at Andy Fleck's Blog. The remit is a little wider than Sweettenorbull, but there will still be a lot about poetry. I guess about a quarter of the posts will focus on poetry, and I will reblog those here on Sweettenorbull.
