horace nods #2

who said you have to be an original
remember your beauty shall fade
there will come a day when no one
will find you fuckable
stop worrying about everyone else
live for today for today shall not come again
don't express reality by trying to be real

Richard, I love these Horace poems. I think you should work thru his entire corpus this way ... "don't express reality by trying to be real" -- whoa.

Happy long weekend, Richard. I hope your life made of the world does get more of these Horace things into the world. In any case, be well. PS and FYI, 2nd ablation now scheduled for 14 Dec ...
