|I am so glad I clicked here
...One day when all the fixes won't do, and beauty will only be found in the picture albums, there, staring back in the mirror. . . "simply, had"
Time to pretty up and finally, get, what it is she's really made of!
Sad what they do, exploiting, but it seems the fix of choice!egh?
"...Radiating as sunlight, she
is clearly aware of the nuances
of a transposable persona and
stands fully erect."
Love and Peace~

|Does it really matter to her
that what she has is temporary?
Bang on like a well-aimed hammer on a nail, Richard. Your words pack a punch. Love and peace,

|The journey awaits
What will it take?
Will you stand in the way?
Can you be any more plain in what you say!
You always want your children to have the best
Better than you
But sometimes you have to step back and see what you did do
Were you helping or hindering.
Only time will tell
But I think you already know just as well.
The BEST is what you always give Richard.
And this is some of the finest.

|I'll say, if it can be separated into different parts and to its molecules, then you are the one, Richard, to do it. All the pieces, all the moments, all the thoughts, all the people and their involvements were captured, literate-d. I see the beginning middles, and the end clearly.|

|Mid [A]lert I Dig. I don't dig the temporary untalented... Brittney, Lady Ga Ga, etc. But the beauty in the photo--I shamelessly inverted it--is real and eternal to you.

|Ed, I feel the same about Sir Richard Lloyd Cederberg. Is he not awesome.|
|Reviewed by John Flanagan
|"...she is the latest in vogue apotheosis;" set me off, sent me near into convulsions, had to get away from the screen for a few minutes to get myself together again. Richard, you brilliant, wicked man, this is joy beyond measure, a chisel job - much too subtle to be a hatchet chop - and then just as I was recovering comes, "as if divinity had emerged from beyond time and space" fu....g marvellous!
and a third killer: "pure vitreous silica"...stop it, I can't think or write any more.

|Funny I knew what the title meant before reading your translation because it's so close to German (mittelfristig). You've decribed in your inimitable fashion one of the sharpest tools in the Babylonian arsenal of contemporary black-arts misdirection. In answer to your question, does it matter to her that what she has is temporary? No, not at all. But she served her purpose. Question is, what event of real import was transpiring at the same time which went completely unnoticed?|

|I don't think poetry gets any better than this Richard. Such incredible descriptives and awe inspiring ambiance.|

|Dagnabbit, Sir Richard! I just finished writing my first book and I SO wish you were closer!! I read this and thought "Oh yeah. It is so temporary." And as always, your writing is more stunning than the beauty striven for and worshiped by those without true sight.
This tired little writer is applauding your work, and waving "Helloooooo" from the deck of her ship moored in the prairie plains of Kansas.
Love to you!
