Rumination Flavored Rum & Memorable Memoirs

The Shalom Auslander is sooo my super hero writer of the week.
I loved his pieces in Nerve/Nextbook/The New Yorker and elsewhere.
His new book
Foreskins Lament sounds like quite the memorable memoir.
His unique presentation, profound opinings /sardonic perspectives are a smooth blend of trusty truisms/realistic plasticity/ soul stripping & searching/ unorthodox humor and rumination flavored rum.
Rumination flavored rum when mixed with the proper levels of profound in-depth analysis/ unhappy happenstance's of the past/,and plenty of outrageous writing talent makes for quite the quintessential must purchase memoir
.

I don't have any more strength. I don't have any more care. I don't have any more dreams. I don't have any more dare.

I don't have any more rhythm. I don't have any more rhyme. I don't have any fizz. I don't have any more dime.

I don't have any more pizzazz. I don't have any more panache. I don't have any more relevance. I don't have any more stash.

I don't have any more raspberries. I don't have any more juice. I don't have any more candy. I don't have any more excuse.

I don't have any more self. I don't have any more me. I don't have any more mind. I don't have any more poetry.

Tzvi - thanx ;-)

Anonymous - goodness gracious quite the pessimistic/ glass half empty/ poetic ponderings. Did you need me to decorate more shot glasses in optimistic opal motif ? You need to spend more time in the city that never sleeps.

You also need to drink more flavored Absolut and Smirnoff often.
Dont fall in or anything.

Pierre - I've actually never been to Baltimore, so ure probally mixin me up with someone else.

Nice quote by Simone De Beauvoir. But I think she's dead now. Not enough sleep.

I have my own quote a wise person once told me:

Love many, hate few, learn to paddle your own canoe...
