  1. Hi, Kent. It’s either a case of “Great minds think alike” or “Fools never differ”. Though I’m not familiar with the Bob Seger song, the poem does express how I often feel. Let’s see: “I wish I was as stupid now as I was back then…” Nah. Doesn’t have the same ring. Thanks for the heads-up, I shall be destroying that poem forthwith. I’m going to start a new one. It begins: “And now, the end is near/And so I face…”

  2. donkeybydaylight: Very powerful piece; 30 pages in OED? Robert, I had a moment to read the Wolfe short story, “Far and Near.” The infatuation of longings can disappoint deeply.

Leo, I like the perfect rhyme of “impart” and “fart.” Seeger’s “Against the Wind” was a big hit in the early 80’s stateside. Now, because of Kent, I will think of Leo whenever I hear and get wind of the song.
