3). Ole Softy By : Leslie Marable
I mourned my kneaded husband
from a dough-machine mishap.

9). Poetic Love versus Commercial Love By : Alexandru Ionescu
Am I the last romantic? This is a very tough question for me! I remember the times when love seemed more pure and diaphanous.

It all continued with peaceful thoughts at night, while looking...
