Dorothy Parker and More Sex but No Politics



I've posted this poem before, but it's one of my favorites so I'm going to post it again -- the perfect pick-me-up after picking up my Sophie from yet another seizure and trying my best to look on the bright side. This is how we do it, folks. I particularly like the last line.


Success Story
My clothes are perfectly contoured
to my body. my shoes & socks
fit just right. My cat is a delightful
intelligent animal. My apartment
is great. The right location,
cheap rent. I eat the best food.
My friends love me. I adore them.
My lover is terrific & beautiful.
The sun is shining. There are trees
even in the slums in Washington.
I have tons of money & a gorgeous 
air conditioner. Great art hangs
on my wall. I live a spine-tingling life
of delirious sex & intense happiness.
                           
 -- Terence Winch

    We do and think what helps don't we...

  5. It sounds like one of those ridiculous affirmations which makes it funny as hell.
