The women & Michelangelo

A stellar phrase came to us through love-struck Prufrock, a.k.a. Thomas Stearns Eliot:

In the room the women come and go
Talking of Michelangelo.

Well, it ain’t the usual go – know – low rhyming scheme for sure.

    T. S. Eliot also gave us:

    This is the way the world ends
    This is the way the world ends
    Not with a bang but a whimper.

    I love your blog James…

    I love this poem.
    It was a favorite of mine when I studied it in college.
