In Short

I have been given to longer postings here, lately ... due to having longer thoughts? I will think shorter ones, then——be short with you, in other words. Shortly. That is to say my head, normally visible above the table, will shrink from sight. "Ah, his lessened stature," you will say. "Long ago he was not longing to be short. He would not be long, not for the world——and is not long for the world." Should I dress in shorts, or in briefs? My utterances will achieve purity when they disappear from my lips before you hear them.
