Don't Eat With Your Mouth Full

Where can we live but days?

PS On words and sexuality
Reading the comments to my previous post, I found this melancholy epigram drifting through my head more or less fully formed....

Tom Eliot, I feel your pain:
Why won't words stay where they've been shoved?
I took a lover and slept with him,
And yet we neither slept nor loved.

Antonin Scalia says, "Words no longer have meaning!"

But he's the man to fix them, with a gavel and a tent peg!

Now you've gone and made me think of Anne McCaffrey, darn it.

For that, no apology is necessary, I hope.

I like that very much!

Thank you!

Oh, excellent epigram!


I'm glad you like it!

That's great.

I'm pleased you like it!
