    For You, From One Who's Tried It

    Résumé Razors pain you; Rivers are damp; Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp. Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give; Gas smells awful; You might as well live.  - by the incomparable Mrs. Dorothy Parker Thanks, Dottie!

    Imitation

    And I was...kind of.  The majority of my friends were male.  We'd sit around a table at a restaurant or someone's house and have these deep and involved conversations-we'd get drunk and I'd smoke cigarettes-yes I've quit.  I know how bad it is, but at that time in my life It...

    Indian Summer

    In youth, it was a way I had To do my best to please, And change, with every passing lad, To suit his theories. But now I know the things I know, And do the things I do; And if you do not like me so, To hell, my love, with you!

    Time Doth Flit
