Haiku from the hand of Dorothy Parker, poet, writer, screenwriter

Love is as certain

as men being rational

Neither will happen


I have imagined many occasions, in a different time, DREAMED of being part of the Algonquin Round Table.  I would have fallen in love with Dorothy Parker and been profoundly blessed to indulge in her beautiful cynicism and brilliant jabs.  And suffered the agony of her rejecting herself.   (And of course, ME!)

The End
