A Very Valentine


    Very fine is my valentine.

    Very fine is my valentine very mine and very fine.
    Very fine is my valentine and mine, very fine very
mine and mine is my valentine.

    What a stupid poem, huh?
    But Gertrude Stein is Gertrude Stein unless she’s Alice B. Toklas.

    Yeah, what is up with that poem?
    I don’t get that about Alice B. Toklas?

    I like it.

    [ I had to google “Alice Toklas” though. I must admit. ]

    I bet Uwe Hartmann would have to do the same! Anything non-technical, you know.

    A rose is a rose is a rose.

    Lettuce go then, you and I, when the evening is ……..

    I should have been a pair of ragged claws ………

    I gotta go,

    Ok, so Alice B. wrote cookbooks and hung out with Gertrude Stein.

    (now I know where I get my off-beat sense of humor)

    Good, zgirl! You got it. Yup, now I know where you got that off-beat sense of humor too! A vose is a vose is a vose.

    I gotta go right now!

    A vose is a vose is a vose.
    Vose O’Neil.
    Vosie O’Donnell.
    Voseann Cash.
    A dozen red voses for Valentine’s Day.
    Or, just one vose will do.
    A vose is a vose is a vose.
    LIfe is a bed of voses.

    I prefer tulips and daffodills.
    Though a peach vose, now, that’s something special.

    Good poem, zgirl!
    Yes, life is a bed of voses, some say.
    Yes, a peach vose, now that’s somepin.
