Andyrene: mocking alcoholics is so low....John Berryman, Edgar Allan Poe, Truman Capote, Jack London, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner....Okay, Eric, what say, let's mock all those people.

You forgot Elizabeth Bishop, whose poem ("One Art") I was parodying. Poor lesbian Liz with her hourly scotch on the rocks and her dead lover in Brazil. She was one of the best American poets of the twentieth century.

Instead of playing The Spirit That Denies, Andyrene should submit some of her own poetry.
