Into the Valley of the Dolls Rode the 600

July 23, 2017

How is it I never used this title for a poem?
How is it I never wrote a whole book with this title?
Another wasted opportunity.
It's so good I wonder if I stole it
except I found it in a file more than 10 years old
so the answer to provenance—
one way or the other—
is, I'm sure, permanently gone.

    Write it now! Poem or (Amélie Nothomb-short) novel. Kind of describes the Trump Brigade's arrival in Washington, no? Opportunities aren't truly wasted until you're wasted yourself, sometimes they evolve.

    We probably should collaborate on this one, eh, Dan?

    Never done that before but would certainly like to try.
