A tale I heard

Writer Jon Ronson on being introverted in social situations:

"Alison Moyet told me a story I could completely relate to. She was a massive Elvis Costello fan and she went to see him play and at the after party she said to him, her hero: “I think you’re great” and he said something like: “Did you like the show?” and she said: “It went on a bit.” She didn’t mean it – it just came out. She went home and she was so upset with herself that she developed agoraphobia and didn’t go out for years. I completely understand that."

A tale I saw

Men Drink Pints by Heidi Henders 

A tale I wrote

Here we go again,
strapping ourselves to ships
in tides we don't understand 

with hats coated in hand drawn
skull and cross bones.
My sea legs are rusty

from salt smiles
and empty bottles of rum.
I see dolphins

in the distance,
unashamed of their clicks,
going with the flow.
