MIXED CONCEPTION (WIFE TO MAX ERNST)

Dearesque,

While you're ruminating
would you make a mental note
to pick me up some eitherorability?
I've been so decisive lately.
And if you run across any veiled threats,
I could use the mesh to revive my brideness.
We'll donate any remnants to the idlers
down the hall — which reminds me.
The Idolators Local finally convinced
the Virgin Mary to chastize her little angel.
I heard the poor thing couldn't sit for a week
so if you don't mind envisioning a few spare birds
I could pluck a pillowful of down
for his smarting backside.

What's that, my love?

I've gotten you with idea?

Gee, that's swell — I just know
you're going to make the best
Dada.
