Pinkish



"...the raw material of poetry in
all its rawness and
that which is on the other hand
genuine..."

From "Poetry" by Marianne Moore

ok. I'm giving you a serious piece of my mind over at my place today, mz lori.Hope you can stand it ;-)
P.S. just to be on the safe side, take your silver wand and small white flower with you before coming over.

(Oh. And don't forget your snork. Always handy.)

Love your perspective, and the lines of these classic cars!
In regards to the raw material of poetry; the reviews are in for the Bic Crystal pen.

Lee'sR -- A piece of your mind? Yippee! I hope it's warm, with a scoop of ice cream.

Anon -- 131 reviews for the pen. My gosh! But...has no one made the connection between Miss Moore and the pic today? Surely, Anon, you would have...

Personally, I preferred "Utopian Turtletop". When asked for her suggestion, Gertrude Stein replied "A rose is a rose is rose." At this point in the meeting, Henry Ford II scribbled his father's name on a note (coincidently with a Crystal Bic pen), and handed that note to the Marketing Department. The rest, as they say, is history.

Lori, I remember that poem by Marianne Moore begins, "I too dislike it." The public disliked the Edsel. But something tells me that's not the connection you had in mind. : ) After all, poetry is still happening. The Edsel is extinct (except for fine images such as yours.)

Pray tell: what's your secret??

Anon -- *snork*

Take a look at 1955...

I'm torn between the Mongoose Civique and...hm, come to think of it the only one I pass on is the Ford Silver Sword (that's just cuz I got me a silver wand instead)

Off topic, but I wanted to leave this, where I talk about Books will fly: It's this way. Thanks Lori.

i love these car photos.
And read the whole of these poems (this one and the Atwood) over at Lee's - thankyou (and to Lee) - I'll be rereading and thinking about them both for a while yet.

Thanks, Lori, for the tip.

Never knew Ms. Moore named Edsels. And with flair. Of course that would be a given, would it not?
