I thought it was about time that I rewrote this. It’s not that I have anything more to say. It’s also not that I have anything less to say. It’s just that I wanted to replace one example of nothingness with another. It can be so satisfying sampling different slices of meaninglessness, don’t you think?

Still smiles, but weakly now, as though it’s bound

Thank you, that's kind. I do not expect Apollinaire has that effect on heterosexual males, no. :) I liked Autumn Sonnet, I like the fact that the form is subverted with the off-beat rhythm. I find personally that the rhythm is the thing and much more powerful than rhyme in all things.... anyway, nice.
