Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
and sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
and looked down one as far as I could
to where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
and having perhaps the better claim
because it was grassy and wanted wear;
though as for that, the passing there
had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
in leaves no feet had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less travelled by,
and that has made all the difference

Are you talking about the Frost poem or the Sunscreen poem, Forsooth? Frost isn't cheesy and what I noticed about the sunscreen poem is the line 'Live in New York but leave before it makes you hard'. Had never focused on that before and it's resonating more than ever.

What's more, Forsooth, the sunscreen piece is about aging and when I first read it, I was in my twenties and I thought it was cheesy too. Things change as you get older, girl; remember that.

That's because you think you have it all figured out, o pompous one, and it pisses me off.

I'll talk any fucking way I want to anyone I fucking well please. If you can't handle it, I'm sure there are a couple of other blogs that would treasure your own particular brand of insightful brattiness.
