Here’s to the roses and lilies in bloom,
You in my arms and I in your room.
A door that is locked, a key that is lost,
A bird and a bottle, and a bed badly tossed,
And a night that is 50 years long.

Herb Caen

“What the hell was that all about?!”

It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference, and undernourishment.
