ANNA BATHA: "Lovelornly" as in tending to be adverbially love lorn some?

HOOPSVILLE BULLYUN: A girl who loves to dis a semble.

AB: (breath laugh) And a tarantella -- what Artha is returning as "a lively whirling Italian dance for two persons to music composed in six/eight time" --

HB: -- you have Artha memorized?

AB: On call. I just keyboard-dial "ctrl + alt + w."

HB: You are advanced.

AB: I'm a character in a die-a'logging story, written by someone sitting at a desk in hump-frump Florida, in boxers and a t-shirt. How advanced can that be?

HB: Depends, I guess, on the writer. Is he wearing Depends?

AB: Not yet. And no matter where anyone might happen to be between life's diaper bookends, in terms of "meaning" that dough naught matter.

HB: Because ...

AB: We are the meaning in the same way that Santa is the deliveryman for Amazon. What it's all not about is us as the ego-glory end of some hormone-floated human thingy, whether stuffed in boxers or in pants, or tube-bare waving "Hello" in the humid, saw palmetto breeze.

HB: Ok, hottie Moma, pretty please put me and "in form" on a floor of dance together? What is it?

AB: For you it's the lingua, frankly.

HB: As in the warm and slippery tongue Français?

AB: Anglais. Français. Hey, say -- there is no geo-poli flag for the warm and slippery wordsome love you are still not-yet-quite-fully-capable of making.

HB: As in ...

AB: The passing image of the long time-worked, genetic "need in the us-of-me" the tall, reedy girl from Aberdeen and a pick-up band in Switzerland are bringing up to life, at the asterisk below -- as the music love they picked up from the tracks-of-life laid down by a brotherhood of brothers who had fled the South for the future Detroit offered. Picked up, transformed and renewed -- what the winter solstice of life has always been about, since we were human-capable of seeing life as a present between a past and a better future.
