Interview for Platform
You may be a virgin or indeed riddled with STDs but I imagine buggery is not much of a problem you encounter or have encountered at school, count yourself lucky. This wasn’t the case for your average boarding school boy in the 1950’s, not only was it pretty much socially acceptable but it also happened a lot. I seem to recall the subject being brought up by many a red corduroy wearing fifty-something quite often, so I thought I would ask my dad to shed some light on the phenomenon.
Have you ever been buggered?
Thats good. I know the system of fagging (in a nutshell, older boys getting younger boys to act as servants for them - Ed) was pretty popular back then, was this effectively a green pass to do what you liked i.e. buggery and other forms of sexual assault?
I was lucky, there was very little in my house. I was dorm captain I remember being called into the housemasters office where he told me that “buggery was afoot”. Prefects had a lot of control, in some ways more than the teachers, i didn’t personally hear or see any of this buggery going on but i am a pretty heavy sleeper so even though it was allegedly going on in my dorm i didn’t hear anything.
Did you ever bugger anyone?
So did people just grin and bear it?
I remember a boy was caught doing it once and all of his house mates pinned him down and drew on his penis with marker pen.
A sort of naming and shaming?
Yeah, I suppose so.
That’s almost on the same level as buggery, I suppose you have to fight fire with fire, right?
Were there any schools that were famous for it?
I think it happened everywhere, a friend of mine at a school called Stowe said that during their school play, in the first act, the curtain rose to reveal two pupils buggering each other.
I kind of wished that happened at my school.
Yeah, pretty funny!
I suppose paedophilia is a similar issue, although a bit scarier.
There was a master at my prep school who rigged up a sound system in one of the dorms and told stories over a loud speaker, afterwards he would tuck all the boys in and have a fiddle under the sheets.
That’s pretty scary.
All the boys appeared to like it and were inpatient for it to be their turn.

HUGS AND RUBS
FRIDAY THE 13TH
Thomas Moore is a fashion victim
who suffered for his sins. Don't think this is gonna make a comeback in the same way plaid has. Made from goat's hair this fetching garm was produced to aggravate and cut the flesh and generally be real bad to wear, it also creates a great breeding ground for lice and bacteria. Thomas Moore was a big fan and allegedely rocked it the whole time (until his head was chopped off)

To scream with pain, to cry, to summon help, to call
generally—all that is described here as "roaring."
In Siberia not only bears roar, but sparrows and mice as well.
"The cat got it, and it's roaring," they say of a mouse.
- from "Across Siberia,"
by Anton Chekhov.
Your Dog Dies
it gets run over by a van.
you find it at the side of the road
and bury it.
you feel bad about it.
you feel bad personally,
but you feel bad for your daughter
because it was her pet,
and she loved it so.
she used to croon to it
and let it sleep in her bed.
you write a poem about it.
you call it a poem for your daughter,
about the dog getting run over by a van
and how you looked after it,
took it out into the woods
and buried it deep, deep,
and that poem turns out so good
you're almost glad the little dog
was run over, or else you'd never
have written that good poem.
then you sit down to write
a poem about writing a poem
about the death of that dog,
but while you're writing you
hear a woman scream
your name, your first name,
and your heart stops.
after a minute, you continue writing.
she screams again.
you wonder how long this can go on.
