A Man And His Writing: Brian Swain 
?I was born
at a very young age,
so I cannot be expected
to remember
all the details.
I recall a loud
noise, though that
may have just been me,
come to think of it.
There were several
quite rough hands.
And then an acrid taste,
which I didn’t much
like, but went
for anyway,
no menu being offered.
I remember glass
and lots and lots
of staring eyes.
After that,
everything is a bit of
a blur
 until today.
