edit 1

oh, look!
another manuscript
on the table

tucking into it
gleefully
with pencil, eraser

colourful pens
circling, marking
rewriting

chuckling
at delightful mistakes
and misprints

(look, he forgot
the ni
in organism!)

frowning
over endless
pages of proofs

learning
to pick words
and mind those em dashes.

Mains and crosses. You sure can link. Unfortunately, I do not update that blog because I have moved to Mumbai. I now click Mumbai street images at http://mumbaipaused.blogspot.com

Thank you!

I actually missed out the 'ni' of micro-organism...during my final year seminar! It's a LOT more embarrassing with speech.
