I hear you, Ian, but my line-lengths etc are as deliberate as my words, for many reasons. If I allow readers to 'see' something in a state other than as I have conceived it I am party to dishonesty. I am not Esker. I do not write like Esker, nor should I try to. If I can't present my work as I wish to present it - indeed if I am simply not allowed to - then I am in the wrong place and should go where I am allowed to present it.


Nah pop no style, a strickly roots.
