On Venice Lido with Ink-Sweat-and-Tears

A Poet-in-Residence poem On Venice Lido is currently on the front page of Charles Christian's popular Ink-Sweat-and-Tears website.
It's a street poetry poem and as such will appeal to readers familiar with Thomas Mann's atmospheric novelette Tod in Venedig (Death in Venice) and/or the classic Luchino Visconti film of the same name.
Along with the poem there's an unashamed plug for Gwilym Williams' Genteel Messages collection (from which the poem On Venice Lido comes).
Handy links to the ink-sweat-and-tears website and the bookshop can be found in the alphabetical sidebar at left.
