Anyone have a DW invite code going spare?

ETA: Not to worry, I just got sent one on the basis of my Open ID signup.

So, I just got my invite code. But it's also the start of round 4 of Sock Madness so there's no time to do anything with this today. I'll still be over at my LJ, if anyone needs me...

This is the only Carol Ann Duffy poem that comes to mind, but I am looking forward to reading more:


Not a red rose or a satin heart.

I give you an onion.
It is a moon wrapped in brown paper.
It promises light
like the careful undressing of love.

It will blind you with tears
like a lover.
It will make your reflection
a wobbling photo of grief.

I am trying to be truthful.

Not a cute card or kissogram.

I give you an onion.
Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,
possessive and faithful
as we are,
for as long as we are.

Take it.
Its platinum loops shrink to a wedding ring,
if you like.
Its scent will cling to your fingers,
cling to your knife.

-- Carol Ann Duffy
