Laura: Have no fear! There's no poison ivy at the writer's retreat! I would know...

Gonna need an ocean / Of calamine lotion. How that brings me back!

Laura: It's really best just to stay inside, don't you think?

Alas, then the weeds take over and you can't get out the front door ever again.

Ay, there's the rub.


Well, this "An Ocean of Calamine Lotion" seems really interesting. I just wondered if you are giving free sample for this product and i just wanna ask how much is it? Anyway, thanks for sharing!


I have been told you can get a poem by signed by Wallace Stevens for the price of an insurance policy you can take out at the airport before they changed the name. So what did i do? I got out and walked. True?

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
