If so, it is working.
Are you happy? It’s the only
way to be, kid.
Yes, be happy, it’s a good nice
way to be.
But not happy-happy, kid, don’t
be too doubled-up doggone happy.
It’s the doubled-up doggone happy-
happy people . . . bust hard . . . they
do bust hard . . . when they bust.
Be happy, kid, go to it, but not too

Dan found my novel in the bargain bin at Green Apple Books ):
well... what's on tap for the weekend?
as for me, well... i know you didn't ask, but...
i have spent the morning listening to Object Blue and reading love sonnets from the 16th century
i know you didn't ask... but here's a taste...
How sweet your glances, how lovely your eyes,
Small gardens blooming with amorous flowers,
Love's sharp arrows darting from their bowers,
My eyes lingering on yours, taking no fright.
O treacherous heart, my cruelest private part,
So have you held me in your iron sway,
So have I cried my lovesick days away,
With my core so utterly torn apart!
Thus you, my eyes, have taken much delight
In being the lucky objects of his sight:
But you, my heart, seeing my eyes' pleasure,
The more you envy, the more you despair:
Let none believe that I'm at ease, aware
My heart & eyes are so out of measure.
— Louise Labé (trans. Richard Sieburth)
