And two poemry titbits I think

I think they will suit your students admirably

Your novel is failing all the usual tests
And the sit-com, it’s very funny but too realistic
As if a dream had been realized
I think perhaps what you need to do is take a step back
But mind that “edge of the precipice”
You’re not Apollinaire
Though I think you’d be good assassinated

I think perhaps a screenplay is your next exploration zone
You could be the next Ken Livingston of literature
Or do I mean that? Stanley? I can’t remember
My history is outside memory
Anyway, helplessly as I disremember myself I am always on the top of things
Literary criticalism especially
