One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Loved the image... I couldn't avoid writing about the belief that a man where to have one rib less than a woman... should be easy enough to count.

Many years ago I attended an exhibition of Lewis Carroll's photography in London and came away with an interesting catalogue which, sadly, went missing in a box full of books and papers I lost when moving from Ireland to England. I don't remember this intriguing photograph but there were others just as unusual. Thank you for a challenging prompt, Kerry!

Fun Flash writing again. No 55 mandate so I didn't.
