  1. Cured of life, or am I too cynical?

    • Too this, too that — I love you just as you are. As for the cure, that was indeed one shade of meaning I intended — or, more accurately, allowed, once I realized it was there. Meanwhile, in its own funny, musical way, cured rhymes with bird, and I like that too. Sound and meaning — who can keep them apart?
