Have you ever attended the funeral of a doll?

It might have been a dream but I think I did once as a kid. This was in the 1950's in America, mind.

I attended the wedding once of someone who was never born. It was a weird Chinese thing.

Novel approach to managing overpopulation?

No, it was more bizarre than that.

Did they play Funeral March for a Marionette at the doll's funeral?

That would be cool, and very precocious.

Rosemary's baby.

Something about the eyes.

One eye is blue, the other brown,

Now we lower her down.

virgil5 - 14 Mar 2019 07:38:50 (#15 of 42)

for thou hath plucked out mine eye

in which the empty wasp nest now

of winter beckons

for I am fat and no pizza approacheth

A moment’s silence for the author of this thread seems appropriate.
