Funny how things develop.
I’ve had a post removed over on Instagram for breaching their community rules about inciting violence. One of the Mugshot poems seems to habve been a bit too blatant.
On reflection, I can see that might well be the case, particularly as there is little context provided by me to place the business back in the 1920’s.
In any case, I may just pause posts from that series generally. It isn’t my intention to agitate the contemporary.
I’m made aware by events like this (there was another issue raised with one of the pieces from the ‘Voices’ collection a while back) of the power of words, but also my own naivette in simply ploughing along my own furrow without giving much thought to impacts and consequences.
Never mind. There will be some next thing, and I’ll share it in its time. If Mugshots ever makes it into book form I’ll give a shout.
