A lovely piece of best Bazza. I wonder, though I only wonder, why you eschewed the stanza. We shall both win this, mark my words.

Default good question

I suppose because initially I had in mind a continuous, flowing indeed, gobby 'confessive' monologue in the Robert Lowell fashion. It didn't turn out that way, no neo-heroic couplets & a much lighter tone, but though it would divide, at convenient & regular full stops, intuitively I like it the way it is.
