No shit.

Did a twelve-year-old boy write out his fantasy here?

Fantastic.

What part is true?

David,
What is the value of this?

True? Sentences two and three. Value? Scientific method.

Who said poetry is boring?

This is hilarious.

Scientific method? What do you mean by that?

To test the hypothesis in the article in Sunday's "NY Times Magazine":
<<
Charles Sennott told me that amid all of GlobalPost's serious coverage of wars and earthquakes, two big hits during the site's first year were a post tiled, 'Meet India's First Porn Star,' and a slide show of Japanese cat outfits.
>>
from Andrew Rice, "Putting a Price on Words," NYTM, May 16, 2010, p. 52.

Did that hypothesis really need any more proving?

David, I´d like to hear more on Trojan wars, beautiful women with little clothes, T.S Elliot and various female lubricants. You have given her a voice, let´s continue...

What about the cat fashion show? I'd like to see that. Mitch?

HOT. You should be writing softcore porn for poets..or why not just go hardcore. Let's hear more of these fantasies that don't include your wife.

No, that hypothesis totally didn't need any more proving..It's the most obvious thing in the world. He didn't post this in order to test his hypothesis, he posted this to get his jollies. If all he wanted to do was test the hypothesis he just needed to have the title be about porn and then not even write an article, could have just left the page blank. This was just a gratuitous sexual fantasy that he couldn't resist sharing. no other reason to post this. definitely not for scientific research.

Hey, folks. Lighten up.

This post is hilarious David.

Jen, I'll take a "gratuitous sexual fantasy" by DL any day. This is funny on so many levels! While he could have the title just be about porn, where's the fun in that? Besides, why shouldn't he try out new ways to draw readers to his blog?

Not only not funny, just boring. Wouldn't even make good Hustler or Playboy material. About as "good" as his poetry, cough.

Who knew this would prove so controversial? Thank you to all who commented one way or the other. I'm grateful for the interest and, of course, the support.

yes! i support gratuitous sexual fantasy! We have quite enough pragmatist sexual fantasy and utilitarian fantasy. up with dresses! down with pants! and please read my new sex poem!

Out of curiosity can we see any of the poems in the manuscript she gave you.

Radio

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

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

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