Just spotted this thread. I had no idea of the things that go on here. I just tried to answer a simple question then I hit "show all" and found a cacophony of contributions. Amazing how y'all get around this board!

>Perhaps you'll need to come to London and take a tube trip with me to spot 'em.

I'd tread carefully, bel. "Tube trip" sounds positively illicit to me. I do, however, concede that some of the world's best poems, music and paintings have been produced by people on "tube trips".

I keep all my promissory posts. (I'm not sure about the promises, though... hmmmm - I think I keep most of those too.)

I've heard it called a mirror-ball before, or a disco-ball too

years ago i heard it referred to as a star ball, alluding to the image of shooting stars flying around the venue in question

I believe the form of poetry you are describing is not free verse, but prose verse (yeah, a contradiction in terms I know). And if you take out all the line breaks they can make rather good paragraphs, but not all paragraphs can be turned into prose verse.
