Ha. This is both very funny and savagely sharp! Savage isn't the right word--but you use such vivid and raw imagery it came to mind. (I am concerned that I am not writing enough poetry when I read this.) Thanks so much, MZ. k.
Ah, what would I do without you to express some of the things that I try to hide!!! You do make my day, MZ!! Thank you!! Enjoy your weekend!
No pretty flowa? I know that poetry certainly keeps me sane, or some reasonable facsimile of it.
You always cut to the chase and totally nail it, MZ. I especially admire finding "vision in cruelty's caul." Wowzers.
This is very true, in my experience. Seems Sacks also had to take his experience of human suffering to a different level by writing about it.
Witty and humourous. Loved it. Thanks.Greetings from London.
Much better than electroshock therapy, anyway. And as my favorite saying goes--poetry, because it's cheaper than whiskey.
I think finding the poetry in all of life's hardness is wise choice, and sharing that brilliance with others is a generous thing.
I had to look up "sputum" eeeyuuuu... it was effective :-)ZQ
I would drink too :)
Hey, I'm all about the "blood-riddled sputum"! Let it flow. This was another brill take on Dr. Sacks, using a phenomenon rather than a title, and it's potent stuff. Amy
