Lame Question(s) of the Day

Question: And poets, what older poets, say past 50? Or some other arbitrary number, is (sic) really still innovating? Is it wrong for me to even ask that question? They could be innovating in their own way, or say, morphing their own selves, but perhaps from the outer perspective they are not (or may not have ever been) innovating.

Answer: Not us, Victoria! Just snug up our Depends and roll us out the door of the Old Folks' Home. We'll try not to drool on your amazing books as we read our non-innovative, stupid little love poesies.


The painting is Water Lilies, "innovated" by Claude Monet in 1906, when he was 66 years-old.

Ahhh, stupid youth.

After all, Robert Frost was in the first flush of youth when he wrote Directive, widely considered a modern masterpiece.

Actually he was in his 70s.

Silly man. Nobody told him we are all just the walking dead after age 30. He forgot to lay down.

Thank you. For crap sake.
55 and I can still chuck a rotten peach into my neighbor's yard, plant a garden, play Bach's B Minor Mass, write a poem, and make cupcakes all in one day. AND I stayed up past 7!

Jesus. First looks, now youth.

Proof that youth is not funnier, thinner, richer, or more talented.

I might also note that writing in the diction of George Bush is not "innovative." It is soooooooo 2004!

OMG! Was there, like, a question there? LOL! How can you be, like, innovating if you don't have, like tattoos or something?
