From your blog I have learned a lot about poetry, pornography, penises, Lucille Ball, the NY Knicks, the NY Pricks, Samuel Beckett, Thomas A Beckett, The Ah Stick, The Ahs (Boston) Wiscard, The Wizard of Nod, popsickles, crackerjack, the toys in the atticm the toys in the bedroom, the toys in the drawer, the boys in the back room, the Jim Cummins inspiratrional story, the gym smells good like a girl's armpits, the Jim Piersall rounds the bases in reverse theory of life, Einstein, Epstein, how frankfurters acquired the name hot dogs, why hambuirgers are not called fat cats, hazz, Phi Beta Kappa, and.

Qui est la? Ne quittez pas!

Our dream of Vermeer is green. But consider Robert Lowell or Roberts Rules of Order. Sic transit gloria mundi.

When you friend unbosom
when your friend
de-bra herself
unhook her bra
when your friend unfastens the clasps
of her brassiere
and her tits and her nipples and her nipples
and her tits
then you know
then you know
then you know

left the house
