Perhaps that's a good venue in which to place One must imagine Syphilus happy.

“Fat Old Roman”

Nero the Chubby dominating the mind of a reader of Susan McLean’s “Fat Old Women.”

“Pet Old Women”

More of the same, but this time affecting the owner of a vigorous golden retriever.

Rilke, The Parks, Ill

(No one captures vomit in a lovely outdoor setting quite like Rilke.)

These are a riot! I misread often. That Rilke's vomit might be poetic is almost too much to imagine!

And Fliss, no apologies needed. It's a title ripe for misreading : ) Interestingly enough, the poem does mention swords...

Julie, just to say, for someone who demands logic to be present when one is expressing thought using words, you have a wild imagination. I know that the two can co-exist, but like it or not, your imagination easily upstages your quest for clarity, I think. It's humor at its best. You're funny!
