The night before Marline arrived, the house was still, and creaking My tired heart, from years of loneliness Felt like screaming or shrieking Everything has been cleaned with care In hopes that she wouldn’t have to clean once she got there. Okay, I’m too tired to write the rest of this poem. It was a[...]

You guessed it! SIX Days Until Marline Arrives!
I was right. Taylor won it. And he should have. Last night, he outsang the girl six ways from Sunday. Anyway, that’s my take on it.
ONE WEEK TIL Marline Arrives!
