J F HAINES: OVERDRAWN AT THE MEMORY BANK

This is a leaflet formed from a single A4 sheet folded into three. It features J F Haines. He is a former folk musician and local government officer. He is also editor of Handshake, a poetry newsletter. This contains little snippets or tasters that centre onother worlds'. Most of the pieces have been previously published. The leaflet is light hearted and quirky, and I leave you with a couple of examples:

	Interglacial

	If you missed the last Ice Age,
	Don't worry 
	Another one will be along
	In ten thousand years.

		After The Insurrection

		Ghosts of planets we burned still come and haunt
		Our sleepless nights, expose our sham defence:
		The dead confront us with their innocence,
		Jerk us wide-eyed from nightmare, pale-grey and gaunt.
