Best Facebook post ever 

Just got a Uni of Melbourne Alumni call. The poor undergrad making the call said one of the good things about calling alumni was the advice they give you. My advice ended up being “Stay quiet about the poetry you write until you are a pensioner. It is acceptable to publish a volume in your 60s, any earlier is pretentious.”

I don’t know how we ended up talking about poetry.

Sleep deprivation must be getting to me.
