June 15: Fearless, Dorothy Parker, "Resume"

Writers have to be fearless.

I know that there are some subjects that cause me a great deal of pain.  Usually, if I find myself trying to avoid something in my writing, I know that it's the very thing I need to confront.

Dorothy Parker confronts difficult topics in her writing.  Heartbreak.  Betrayal.  Death.  Suicide.  She just does it in a really funny way.

Saint Marty hopes he will never be a coward in his writing.


by:  Dorothy Parker

Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.
