Definition

One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

I am trying to ignore the leftover chocolates at the kitchen ~ Thanks for hosting MZ ~

Happy weekend to all ~

Gia said...

I've only had one sucker, thus far. I don't know why, but I'm only craving oatmeal and coffee these days. Perhaps it's the aging process.

Ella said...

Wow, I craved Oatmeal the other day and put Peanut butter in mine~ I still want chocolate-it is my addiction! Thankfully, we don't have a lot of it left. I handed the chocolate out and left the suckers and gummies for us.

Thanks, MZ this is sweet or sour-both!

Hysterical! I will be back most likely tomorrow - hopefully with far fewer calories now that I have received this warning.

Catherine said...

I too have too much candy left over!! Catherine

I do not eat candy. I spend all my days in fasting and meditation. Wearing a hair shirt (from Macy's). Then monkeys fly out of my ass.

I set out to write a 55, but it ran over. I liked it so well, I didn't want to edit it down. This was either wisdom or rampant idiotic ego on my part! If you'd like to see it, I'll put the link here, but i won't do the linky because it isn't a 55.

Thanks MZ for setting this up. I've missed the 55s since Galen stopped doing it and thought you guys were taking it up here but never hit it right. Thank you.

p.s. I got rid of the candy. It's like ice cream in the fridge....gnaws at my brain until I give in.

It felt really good to wrap my mind around 55 words, since time-constraints have hampered my writing. Thank you!

I get the Tootsie Rolls as the kids get them but don't eat them. Not too much chocolate in them?

Sorry it's a little (lot??) late. I've been thinking about this all day and decided to go for it. It is acrostic form, syllable six syllables.

As usual, late but present! I was in a candy coma!

Margaret said...

Posting very late … and will swing by LATE tomorrow night. November is the time for busy beavers - but this my schedule is even too crazy for them!
