ee cummings on Abe Vigoda

in spite of everything
which breathes and moves,since Mount Doom
(with white longest hands
neatening each crease)
will smooth entirely our minds 

-before leaving my room
i turn,and(stooping
through the morning)kiss
this pillow,dear
where our heads lived and were

in mordor
when the orcs came 
and made hillary their queen.

You know his ears didn't always look like that, but the guy was very popular with the ladies, and after decades of being passed around like a jazz/rock fusion band out of Annandale, he developed the unfortunate mark of man used beyond any sense of decency or compassion.

Ach, This Dreamer Cometh

e.e. cummings couldn't rub two dimes together for years.
What good is fame in a 6th floor walkup?
"What'll I do, Abe?" "Hey kid, you got a loch in kop?
Find a line of work that pays. Ditch the fears."
