From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

by Helen Moore
A collage poem inspired by two articles juxtaposed in the Guardian [16.9.06]
they strut and posture against a fabulous cliff-edge location –
An avian style of heroin chic,
it turns the spotters’ heads
as the chicks lose their grip,
and, like Naomi on platform heels,
and slip –
to double zero,
make a splash where no flash-bulbs ever venture.
