       For those who don't know, Raymond Chandler wrote detective novels. His use of language was amazing. One of my favorite quotes is "That blonde was as pleasant as a split lip."

    When I met you I was drunk
    on Raymond Chandler's words,
    and you fed into the fantasy,
    so call me a dame,
    compliment my gams,
    and we'll drink scotch
    Wear trenchcoats and fedoras,
    and you can solve my mystery
    for my dull life surely is a crime.

      SQUEEE!!!!!! I love it - i can see it, feel it and even hear it!!! You write so beautifully that I cannot imagine that you could really see life as being dull... your imagination must have something on which to feed after all ^_^

      This danced with drama and suspense around a fantasy life, suspended with in a mystery novel and shelved for lack of interest.

    You used such a clever word play that one is forced to smile.

      Remins me of the old black and white Film Noir. The only thing missing is the wisps of smoke from the ciggarette, in it's long black holder, dangling from your fingers. This is really pretty good. You come up with some very different ideas for your writing. I commend that!
