to anyone who likes this "poem"

We corresponded for years
I was looking forward to meeting her in real life
I was warned she would be an enormous disappointment
she turned out to be very nice
imagine my disappointment


_________________________________________

confess, did you like that?

why?

It is a twee piece of nothing that I wrote in 30 seconds to illustrate a certain technique that Leonard and others too readily use. Anyone can write about your "invincible defeat". I think the attraction is its very tweeness, the wholly predictable unexpected "twist", and a feeling that there is something fuzzy but profound hiding in the words. "Ooh, I don't really understand that but I bet its ironic".

The example I gave from 1000 Kisses is not particularly helpful as that song's strength is surely in the wonderful moody atmosphere of the song.

regards

A double disappointment that turns out to be nice, excellent.

Thanks tinderella (I love your name, by the way)... perhaps you could help me out here and make about a thousand xerox copies of that post you just wrote, and paste them all around this place. You could also send dozens and dozens of them to his lordship on a regular basis. I have a feeling he would really appreciate such an effort on your part. After all, we're all about extending good feeling around here -- especially his lordship (that's mickey_one, in case you're new here)...

so, tank you tinderella,

Violetta

Well kinda new to this part of the forum.... I usually just hung around the tour threads... Im not clever enough to write poetry or stuff like that but i do soooooo enjoy reading them... What's with the Lordship title for Mickey? I think you should be called Lady Violetta.... where would he be without your wonderful replies to his posts

... I've borrowed this stellar line of unparalleled screenplay writing (in the history of cinema) before, but, truly, tinderella... "this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship"... (Casablanca, last line... Bogey, a.k.a, Rick, to what's his name... the Claude Rains guy... turned turn coat that he was)...

Anyway, stick around... who knows what may happen in these parts...

Signed,

Lady Violetta (sometimes known as Lady M., when she's feeling extra dramatic)...

How curious that you claim to be Irish and yet I didn't see you when I paid an Official Visit to your little country but recently

Tin,

If by Albert Hall, you are referring to L's fall tour, I've not been paying much attention, as I am, alas, an American, one who's locked up here on this steel and glass towered island of inverse Camelot-dom, as it were (otherwise known as N.Y.C.)... although I am something of an anglophile, as his lordship very well knows, even though he won't even consent to meet me for a proper cup of British tea. Of course, happily, he's now made up for such lapse in social etiquette given his above poem... poor lordship... he thinks I won't notice what's really on his mind, and yet it's just useless, this insistence of his that he just doesn't care...

Now what were we talking about?

I like the word twee. It's so very tweet.
I, myself (with my husband and his glorious shovel), planted four twees this year, all crab-apples.

Meanwhile, back in Tweeville...
"Ooh, I don't really understand that but I bet its ironic".
Oh, Michael, how could you? After all my training, you persist in popping this punctuative pimple, leaving not even the scar-memory of my beloved apostrophe. [sigh, again.]

Unless, of course, you had intended to complete your sentence, and simply forgot:
"Ooh, I don't really understand that but I bet its ironic brother is coming to town".
Yes, I think you probably meant something like that.
