Variations on a theme by Lloyd Cole and the Commotions

Read Norman Mailer
Or get a new tailor
“Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken”

Read Philip Roth
Or order samples of cloth.
Read Ballard again
In your new cardigan.
Read some books of Annie Proulx’s,
And get a new pair of shoulxs.

  2. OK, I’m having trouble stopping now:

    Read Christopher Isherwood
    (I doubt Kate Fischer would).
    Read Ernest Hemingway
    But not in a condemningway.
    Read Booth Tarkington
    His saga weighs a farkington.

  3. Awesome.

    Read Henry James,
    He drops a lot of names.
    Read W H Auden,
    But when you get bored an’
    Read Ezra Pound
    You’ll find that he’s ideologically unsound
