Spam, Spam, Spam

Bill Manhire's new volume, Lifted, fondly remembers a Louis Simpson poem with a typo about a Soviet dictator called Joseph Stain, and the tale of a compositor wondering who this Stan character is they're always talking about in Paradise Lost.

'Grow your cöck' just saunters past the spam detector.
