And I am troubled by things.
1. Is the dog cleaner than she was this morning? So, the Butcher cleaned the whole house and the dog? I know I shouldn’t admit this out loud, but shit, if I actually had the money to support both of us, I could happily go to work and pay for everything in exchange for a clean house. Anybody with a trust fund want to be my wife? I would be an awesome husband. I can burp and fart with the best of them. And unlike many traditional husbands, I don’t have a hairy ass. And I like to talk about things. And I would totally understand why Susan wearing the green dress to church upset you, even though I would not, of course, go to church.
2. We have a tiny reversed crop circle in the back yard. All the grass around it has been mowed, but a perfect circle of tall grass and clover is sitting in the middle of the near back yard. I know aliens leave regular crop circles. Do the people that live in the center of the earth leave the reversed ones?
3. Can a modernist poet be a plagiarist or does the fact that he’s a modernist protect Eliot by reframing him as a contextualist? Can a modernist poet plagiarize? I’m not sure?
