What's the world's best advertising space?  
Yup, the back of a toilet door. The brilliant Jen Hadfield worked that out some time ago and instituted Shetland's Bards in the Bog programme to bring poetry to the ultimate captive audience. It's a very popular programme and I'm delighted that I'm part of it this time round - the current 6 poems are the first in the list on the attached link. There are some great poems in there; I can recommend "Immigrant" by James Sinclair and "Come Ben Trow" by Mary Blance. They have to be no more than 12 lines; this is mine:

Winter: Hoswick

In the fields
                   more geese than sheep
in the bay
                   more seals than boats
in the sky
                   more night than day.

I used to carry a permanent marker around and copy favourite poems of mine on toilet doors. I love that someone's doing it officially XD
