SUBSTANTIATED

SUBSTANTIATED PRETENSIONS: AD-LIB . . .

The windows' full of mountains, sunshine, snow.
Conventional wisdom weeps: inspirational.
Oh yeah!
There's more inspiration in bottled Chardonnay
Truth be known:
But, hey that's a no-no.

So, where does it go from here?
Rapturous interventions.
Emile Dickinson and all that crap.
Margaret Atwood's cynicism's more the truth
Did you know Ruskin never screwed his woman?
Wow!
And William Morris was a Fabian middle class shill!
No wonder we love 'em.
Them'z us!
