"So then I said to the class, 'Young poets Auden to read The Waste Land in Africa - they might get bitten by a TSE-tse fly.' Hiyuk, hiyuk, hiyuk."

"And then HE says, Wystan, you so cray cray. For realz, Kanye is the shiz."

"Trust me, Tom, Northern is far softer than Charmin."

"So ever since the operation, everything is fine, really.."

...and what about valerie??? doesn't she get a say...???
this from an article in the London Evening Standard last year - "...after his death, Valerie Eliot observed: "He obviously needed a happy marriage.

He wouldn't die until he'd had it. There was a little boy in him that had never been released."

"What do you mean, 'objective correlative'? There's nothing objective about it."
Or,
"Let us go, then, you and I -- Valerie won't mind, will she?"

And so they said "We can't find anybody named 'Dukant' in our registry".

So I said "Du can in Florida"

"You know, we're all going to die whether we love each other or not."

We must love one another or diet. -- DL

"I SAID - wouldn't it have been funny if you'd called it Old Possum's Book of Practical CU - oh, never mind! Ha ha!"

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom

in the dark
