What a shame this hasn't surfaced before. Hooky could have put some music to it and stuck it on his E.P.

And of course we all know how school boys can be so goddamn self-aware that they're abbreviating their first name in silly poems and make sure to write their credit in ink that is darker than the rest of the text. Brilliant!

Fake! Not the way Ian used to write.

Not all his writings were in block capitals - as the "So This Is Permanence" book reveals. Some of the poems in there are of similar writing to this.

For anyone willing to part with upwards of £1K for any signed item (from anyone not just Ian Curtis), at least some form of providence of heavier gravitas than provided in the sales pitch on the link is an absolute nailed on requirement....and even then in this instance there will still be doubt and that prevents any further chance of selling the item in the future.  Period.

maybe it's a poem from 'ingrid' curtis......????just kidding,that drawing  in't right corner resembles the drawings of 'the real ian' in 'torn apart ' by l.reade & m.middles.....but,skeptics could/would see that as the inspiring catalyst for inventing such an artifact;no win-win situation on't net,is there with stuff like this?

Any truth in the rumour that Hooky is already working on the music for these lyrics?

I want Ian's autograph on a Heineken beer coaster, obtained at the bar from the Effenaar club. Maybe someday soon...
