Meta Poem

As I walk on the beach
in my white
flannel trousers,
and reminisce
of the starlight
on the bay,
Biscayne
neither Eliot,
nor Stevens,
with his concupiscent curds
will cause me
to long for
peaches & ice cream.
Dirty little former English major/teacher that I am, I LOVE this!!! I immediately thought of Eliot with the flannel pants and I love "concupiscent curds." Very clever!! You should send this out!!! You're a good writer, Missy!!!!
