    For You, From One Who's Tried It

    I Collect First Editions

    I collect books and one of my prize possessions is the first edition of Dorothy Parker's collected poems. I gave it once to a friend to read and after I didn't hear anything of it any more I ventured so far as to ask it back from her. My friend was suffering from cancer treatment...

    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
