It was small wonder, then, that he suddenly flung down his brush on the floor, said 'Bother!' and 'O blow!' and also 'Hang spring-cleaning!' and bolted out of the house without even waiting to put on his coat.

My book is here, and it's gorgeous! Go buy a copy to reward Jo for her rashness in publishing a completely off-the-radar poet. She's done an amazing job. Order it here.
Dave Bonta made this "moving poem" out of a reading of one of the poems in it:
A book, a video, and an actual bottlebrush mole: you've redefined the multi-media publication event.
So many congrats, and - whee! - I'm off to buy. xxx
Oh, hooray! I've ordered my copy & can't wait to hold it in my hands and read and re-read.
Thanks so much, you two! You both have a lot to do with the poems being written at all, you know.
But why doesn't Paypal permit order of multiple copies? Or perhaps tis just beyond my ken, like the folding instructions for origami yoda.
No worries for you: I've already left this quasi-querulous query with Jo. You already have a Martha Stewart kitchen's worth of dishes up in the air.
How did Dave find that mole? Beautiful poem. I'm on my way to Pindrop now.
@Nina, I know very well who you are :-) Thanks for all your encouragement over the years!
@Julie, if you make an origami Yoda out of my book, I definitely want a video of it!
@Christine, the mole came to him, at Plummer's Hollow. A mole pilgrimage I hope to make sometime too.
You're so sweet. Thank you!
Ordered. I look forward to reading!
Oddly enough, I watched this movie this morning on movingpoems.com and enjoyed it then.
I watched again just now, and enjoyed again.
I love that the internet can bring so many goodies!
Winging its way to me!
That mole is so sweet, I'm just amazed how long it stayed above ground.
Woohoo... I just ordered my copy as well! Excited for you, Dale.
Hey, thanks so much, @Paul!
& @Lucy and @Maria. xoxo
How wonderful! I just ordered mine. A treat on its way to look forward to in the next few days, which is the start of my annual horribly busy period.
Oh, saw elsewhere and liked...
Congrats on the book being out!
I shall be interested to see how it goes, publishing overseas. I have definitely noticed that people are more loath to pay postage from the UK (on my book-before-last, I saw it.) But then one gains some audience in the UK... and that's a good thing.
Shall get it, of course. And maybe you could say more about Jo and about Pindrop (great name) because I had never heard of it.
What are you doing to help promote it? Sheer curiosity because things are changing so fast that I am not really sure what works any more and, having a new book of poems out, I am interested to see what's up with other people in the same boat.
Much luck, Dale!
It's about time!
