Editor’s Note: Ian is offering up The Bilge Pump of a Turgid Mind, his first book of poetry, for free on Amazon. This offer is good until December 29, 2020. You can search for his posts here at MOTW, for examples of his poetry (in addition to his poem here). Do yourself a favor and get your free copy of his book. You can also purchase (if you choose to do so) his other books at Amazon. They are all really good.
