Okay, that thunderclap over the Gatineau Hills this afternoon must've finally jarred something loose in my doggy brain. I knew something hadn't been hanging right lately. Positive karmic shi(f)t aside, I mean...

Okay, here's the thing: We've allowed the lcp to go unremarked, for what amounts to a pretty glaring double standard, at the very least. We'd divined that he probably had asked 5M to keep him out of the blog, and had ascribed various quasi-noble motives to do with relationships. Like, oh, didn't want something very private and very special made very public, or something like that...

So meanwhile, why the hell did he get to merrily plaster the city with his broadside ode to 5M? Huh? Huh?

You make a good point, Coyote.

I guess the difference between the two may be a matter of style and the degree of overtness of disclosure.

For example, the lcp may pen something like:

the 5M, before she bends,
moves slightly aware, a cold embrace,

whereas, the 5M would pen something like:

I dumped the lcp today, prior to going to yoga.

I've been wonderin' when that scent would cross yer nostrils, Coyote.

'Tis been mentioned the lcp was planning a series 'v nine 'v his non-rhyming ballads to the lass.

With a dedication to a specifically named female.

Here's a picture of the poem

and here's the other side of the page.

with pixellation, of course, because even if the lcp and 5M don't worry about privacy, we do.

This is Conch Shell -- hanging out in relative safety of the shallow seas again, heading off to the Northern deeps tomorrow. Have been adventuring, and am saying goodbye to Mother Pearl tonight.
Not sure if this will work, but have managed to access this for a rare moment.
More later, my meta-friends,
I remain,
