“The hangover stumbles in like laity…”

Youth warns no one when it leaves the party.
It does not thank the hostess, then air kiss,
Then wave, hailing the hot night’s last taxi….

Of course, there’s a lot more than that – but you have to subscribe and you have to find something more useful to do with your finger muscles (one page at a time) than tapping plastic chiclets all day and tapping mice on the head.


  1. “The wine has gone to piss…”

  2. Sorry, “turned to piss.” I’m a little drunk.

  3. Well, that’s the end of that. Good poem, though.

  4. And this is why I love this blog.

    I’m a little disoriented. I also don’t believe any of those were the real Lickonas.

    “Tapping mice on the head” is funny, too. Nice plug.
