  1. I have mixed emotions about this remake…I am always relunctant to veiw movies based on books I enjoyed. They often miss the mark and anger me 😉

    Very nice ode. Love the line “swimming headlong in booze”


  2. Perfect pitch pen captures Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” exactly. I taught that book for 23 years and always found something new to admire in his style and voice and humor. (Yes, there is that dry humor of Nick’s in certain passages that increases our feelings about Gatsby). This poem is a lovely tribute to Fitzgerald.


  3. A brilliant epitaph. Best I don’t reblog the piece I wrote a while back regarding the ‘married to madness.’ Would not be fitting after such finely crafted words!
