Poem for Saturday, Strange Bedfellows, Great Falls

love is more thicker than forget
By e.e. cummings

love is more thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail
it is most mad and moonly
and less it shall unbe
than all the sea which only
is deeper than the sea
love is less always than to win
less never than alive
less bigger than the least begin
less littler than forgive
it is most sane and sunly
and more it cannot die
than all the sky which only
is higher than the sky


I got to review one of my absolute favorite hours of television on Friday, Deep Space Nine's "Strange Bedfellows", in which Winn and Dukat have sex all over the place and snipe and conspire and are generally hot and awesome. Oh yeah and Worf and Ezri finally look like competent adults, while Damar comes into his own. I love watching Louise Fletcher and Nana Visitor as the Kai realizes she's not giving up her power for anything, not even the Prophets! And Marc Alaimo and Fletcher sharing bon-bons and secrets!

After lunch, we went to pick up Daniel in College Park and had him drive us home, though we stopped at the Silver Spring Kohl's so he could get new shoes (and I took advantage of the 70% off sale to get a lightweight black jacket). When we were all done with work, we had early Valentine's dinner with my parents, then watched the Antony and Cleopatra and Romeo and Juliet episodes of Shakespeare Uncovered with cameos by Alan Rickman and Geoffrey Rush. Here's Great Falls in winter, though not as cold as this weekend:
