new old kid on the blog,
with an occasional
old or new poem written off
the old writer's block
Ooooh! Bitterly lovely. Puts me in mind of Prévert:The Discourse on PeaceNear the end of an extremely important discoursethe great man of statetumbling on a beautiful hollow phrasefalls over itand undone with gaping mouthshows his teethand the dental decay of his peaceful reasoningexposes the nerve of warthe delicate question of moneyBut nothing here is as appropriately arch as "a heavenly trail/of salubrious saliva"!
salubrious - almost as good a word as lugubrious.
Joe,Your comments and the reference to Prévert most welcome, as I had forgotten about him; thanks!Kass,Believe it or not, at one point I did think of using "lugubrious" but opted for "salubrious"--not only for its meaning but for its sound.
