Announcing Stone Telling 12: Joke  

We are happy now to say
the next issue's on its way(1)
so please marvel at the cover
and how mermippo does hover

(1) Callooh! Callay!

Give a cheer for all the poets
who gave this joke a go - it's
thanks to them we have an issue
for which you won't need a tissue (2)

but for not-the-usual reason -
just the poems over-pleasin'!

Yes, it is I! Behold, my LJ. Mostly friends-locked journaling for my personal benefit these days. Sadly, most of the LJ users from my real life have deserted for other internet lands.
