We are whole countries caught in cotton
…that this pissy and ungourmet coffee undercompensates for a last night on the tiles and the bourbon with the boys.
Fourteen lines rotate like a weather vane
In the corner, across from the fountain, sits Peter Proma
Nothing is spoken
And dry toast, and hardbook books
On Sunday night we howl
The cotton mill roar in his voice
This is Manchester
Each day opens slowly | but the nights are folded up | and concentrated.
“Fuck off, I don’t want to get worms!”
A society which deals with male health and social issues made a request not to be placed near a number of left wing and feminist groups during last month’s student fair, it has emerged.
The Masculinity Exploration Networking and Support (MENS) society feared they would be disturbed by members of feminist, communist and socialist societies on other stalls if placed too close to them.
The MENS society was formed last year amidst extensive debate over their aims and purposes, with some accusing the latent group of sexism.
Gareth Morris, the society’s Chair, said, “The MENS society did ask to be allocated a stall away from other societies – to wit Communist Students, the Socialist Workers’ Party, the Riveters and New Student Writing. The reasoning for this was very simple; in the past, certain members from these groups (though by no means all of them) have disapproved of the activities of the MENS society.
