Ode to Billie Joe (Bobbie Gentry)

"It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day..."

Discuss among yourselves...

POEM: The Saddest by Eugen Jebeleanu (translated by Matthew Zapruder)

The saddest poem
is the poem which is not written
swallowed with knots
stalked by customs officials and bridges
the one which cannot be contemplated
not for anything ever.

Keep that poem.

She is surely the woman
who will give birth in pain.

And in her we shall each
recognize ourselves.

QUOTE: "The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn." ~ David Russell
