    " I'll wash the floors. He'll watch the stars.
    I'll salt his life with common sense.
    He'll suck my sap and vigor down
    the crude mouth of his private.
    Visions have no equivalents.
    He'll die of drink and candy bars. " ****** way to go poet****

    no hope of surfeit or remorse. feelings expressed so well. thanku. tony
