On Befriending Your Best Friend's Girlfriend and Resisting the "One True Sex Act"

LW1, this is sort of just brekaup common sense, so sorry if it sounds elementary, but one other piece of advice: do not bad mouth the ex. It may be tempting to agree with any vitriol your sweetie needs to get over the rbeakup, but if that comes up, just be a listening ear. Agreeing with negative things about the ex could backfire.

On Closeted Characters, and the Books That Love Them

We all know, right, that the "sperm" is short for "spermaceti," and that Melville and Ishmael definitely knew the stuff they were practically swimming in wasn't actually sperm?

(Not to be that obnoxious pedant; I get that this is a joke! But still. Not really sperm.)

On Poetry: A Love Story

The first poem I think of when I think of Elizabeth Bishop is “One Art,” and for writing that poem I think she has earned a million dusty dry poems about Maine. (But I totally understand what you’re saying—poetry isn’t the art form I feel this way about, but there are some I have similar feelings for.)
