Larry McMurtry published a book called Paradise.
Yes, about a cruise of the South Sea Islands. Polynesia.
I wish I could take a cruise. I would be like Nelson Algren,
writing Who Lost an American? Or Notes from a Sea Diary:
Hemingway All the Way. Rascals in Paradise. James Michener.
Michener, of course, wrote Tales of the South Pacific.
Leeteg painting tittie-pictures on black velvet.
Was he a serious painter?
Not in a league with Gauguin.
Gauguin hooked up with van Gogh,
who shot himself in the stomach.
