A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I read

The Whole World is Sadly Talking to Itself by James Tate
[The Whole World is Sadly Talking to Itself by James Tate]

A tale I heard

Comedian Johnny Vegas on his third class art and ceramics degree:

“I’d always loved design. It never, never leaves you. I know I went off in a different direction – maybe I was bitter at how I was graded. I’ve started going into my pottery studio again and just enjoying my time there. Just for me. It’s not for exhibition. I’ve just made Britain’s ugliest breadbin. Genuinely.”

A tale I saw

Me Poem by John Hegley

A tale I wrote

There's a little kitchen
in our living room
next to our big kitchen.
It has a pig's head
sitting in the sink
looking up at the toaster
the size of a small fist.
The little kitchen is leaning
against a window.
The window is looking 
out at the world
making even less sense..
