@uschi_the_listener I read that Hafiz was "bitterly opposed by supposed 'men of the spirit' who denounced him as an infidel and libertine. Unable to understand the allegorical nature of his work, they assumed that it was blasphemous, dangerous, superficial and pornographic". No wonder we enjoy his verse.

@wordsmith I wrote a poem that I think is both funny and very hot about a schoolteacher fantasizing getting his knob polished during a lecture. You should look at it. It would appeal to you. It's called "virtual" and I posted it here today.

@uschi_the_listener Since I'm in the library I feel it is the perfect venue for reading such blasphemy

@wordsmith Libraries may be the last bastions of freedom in the world. You may not realize what badasses librarians are. They are. Trust me on this.


@uschi_the_listener I presume that they're all badassery and eloquent armouries underneath their smart attire and hushed speech.

@wordsmith They are scary badass. If I were going to write about post apocalyptic badasses they would all be librarians.
