Dover Bitch

DB has (finally) finished retroactively adding labels to old posts, taking advantage of this new blogger feature. Apologies to Dover Bitch readers who use the RSS feed and have been seeing old posts appear in the recent post list.

I'm sure the arbitrary system I came up with isn't the best, but it will have to do.

Here's an awesome poem to make amends:

Danse Russe
by William Carlos Williams

If when my wife is sleeping
and the baby and Kathleen
are sleeping
and the sun is a flame-white disc
in silken mists
above shining trees,-
if I in my north room
dance naked, grotesquely
before my mirror
waving my shirt round my head
and singing softly to myself:
"I am lonely, lonely.
I was born to be lonely,
I am best so!"
If I admire my arms, my face,
my shoulders, flanks, buttocks
against the yellow drawn shades-

Who shall say I am not
the happy genius of my household?
