I've always considered an overbite quite sexy. Consider the possibilities.

Dear L: Did you see the movie? Is it any good? I loved Keats as a youth, but I have mixed feelings now. I remember going to the Keats-Shelley Memorial, in 1966, which was next to the Spanish Steps in Rome. A lock of Keats's hair was on exhibit. I assume it's all still there.

I haven't seen the movie yet. I'm cheap, so I'll probably wait until it's on Netflix.

I think Keats, being so young himself, speaks most eloquently to the young. I still love him, but the love is more nostalgic...God, that makes me sound like I'm a hundred and five.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
