WONDERFUL response by Collins!

From C. S. Lewis (regarding the opening three lines of Prufrock):

A Confession

. . .
For twenty years I’ve stared my level best
To see if evening–any evening–would suggest
A patient etherized upon a table;
In vain. I simply wasn’t able.

Bah. I love Prufrock. But I have to admit Collins is funny.

I remember when the Allman Brothers Eat A Peach album came out I wondered if it was also a note to J. Alfred. Would have been fitting. I don't think it was though.

Glad to be challenged by Eliot and allowed to laugh at the dribbles down my chin, as well.
