this poem is so good, it's hard to even describe it....I agree: more
frivolity on Earth.....I mean, whatever happened to frivolity? wild
orgies? the good life? ......

totally fresh, unexpected from the title and hilarious.
Jordan's comments are right on and very "tate-ish". We would all enjoy life
more with more frivolity.

this poem is so suggestive and conversational that it reads like floating,
intoxicating air through a sober world. we need more frivolity here on
earth, and tate seems to feel the same way - this poem serves to provide
some. excellent!!!!
