She Sells Sea Cell By The Sea Shore

Please, Ladies and Gentlemen, and now, kindly, The Better Things Social Club brings you a quiet poem by the sea…


And you breathe in the moment –

The sea is upon you

Roaring in your caves

Chuckling as a King Gull

In full sardine bib.

And you reveal the surf –

Open, flexing, nervous

Scuttling tumbly fretting fiddlers

And flicking sputnik’d urchins into giddy orbit.

Amongst the nets

There is a sailor and

He is naked and Greek and beautiful.

Dangling from your hook tails

He glitters of ancient porcelains

A starfish in an extraordinary dusk

Sunday prayers in a shark’s eye.

And you exhale the audience –

It is blood

And salt

And candy.

It is



Okay, now would everyone please put you teacups and finger sandwiches down (Hey! You – yes you – stop cramming yer filthy gob – Put. The. Sandwich. Down.), and Michel, you would be a lamb and kindly pause your beautiful violin playing, it is now time to BREAK OUT TH’ FREAKIN’ YARN! YEAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PARTY ONNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

End Scene.

To purchase any of the above yarn, please send me an email at orders AT (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which colours(s) you would like, where you live and whether you want it shipped surface or air mail. First email request for each yarn/fibre secures it. I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off within 3-5 days. Shipping charges to the US will start at $5.44 for surface mail and $7.70 for air mail. Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval. Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked). I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps. Custom orders (including dyeing or overdyeing your own fibre or yarn) are always welcomed! Just email me with what you have in mind.
