Mike Weller Poetry Feller, Posie Rider (Mossad Press*) (out of print)

Is Posie's title built around "A Minimus Postcode Poem" first read at Writers Forum (New Series) workshop and dedicated to Doug Jones?

If so, time it saw reprint. Has lines beginning and ending ---

"and the little electronic coloured lights go ▪▪▪▪
Phone Cards ▪▪▪▪ Mobile Phone & Accessories ▪▪▪▪
Repairs & Unlocking ▪▪▪▪ "
