So, you want a little more than I gave you yesterday…Sink your teeth into this one….This is the Tues poem a couple days early

On T S Eliot Being Catholic Reserve within your hope a hope to turn your coat back and retire or coil. Recoil your fire within a gyre of looking to another direction not back, mind you, to be a pillar of salt, not left or right but straight, hold forward, look to civil war in […]
