For the shenanigans you put me through so many times
Sometimes, I wish I...

Patsy Foley Was Roly-Poly in 1947
It may have been the devil himself who prompted the kids in my schoolyard back in 1947 to chant "Patsy Foley's roly-poly from eating too much ravioli."

At first, no one could remember who started the...

Below the Horizon - Shallow Shame

genuflecting to a deity
they do not know, nor wish to

fumbling
mouths closed,

swallowed hole
in the...
