A group of writers in Chichester coming together once a month for inspiration, collaboration and sensation

Self Portrait as a Soft Toy Monkey

Myself as monkey

Given to child as present

Many years ago


Soft cuddly monkey

Is this how they will see me?

A child’s memento


Not given by me

But by ex girlfriend to friend

It carries my name


Ask where is it now?

In some forgotten corner?

Maybe still played with


Then there’s me thinking

Is it really a monkey?

Should it be an ape?
