    I think she's brilliant. I hope she keeps writing.

    In her biography, Ms Patrick claims not to be a poet 'of any substance'. I feel that she is underselling herself: here is a highly intelligent, witty, feisty, and, above all, TALENTED young poet who packs a serious punch into just about everything that she pens. I enjoy nearly every single piece of her writing, my personal favourites including 'Rhyme Is a Crime', 'Little Jimmy Tattersall', 'Hand Job', and 'Do Not Disturb'. As she astutely observes in 'Great Unknown', she is indeed a great if obscure writer. It is my wish, however, that her works receive the wider audience that they fully deserve, and sooner rather than later. Bridg, allow me to offer you my full admiration and respect for your zesty, entertaining writing.
    Very best regards,
    Gina.

With stresses or accents to make the verse flow,
It's just a fine way to put on a good show!

The best of all verses, as anyone knows,
Are big healthy portions of random-thought prose;
Without rhyme or rhythm to get in ones head
It's easy to know what the ...
