This blog gets its name from the Auden poem The Fall of Rome.

Caesar’s double-bed is warm
As an unimportant clerk
On a pink official form.

My name is Kevin Nolan. I’m a writer, not a clerk. I like my work.

I’ll use this pink official form to post musings, mini-essays, photos, rants, and writing that fits nowhere else.

I quote from The Fall of Rome because I admire the poem, and a few lines have always stuck with me, probably because they describe the era we’re living in right now:

Private rites of magic send
The temple prostitutes to sleep;
All the literati keep
An imaginary friend.

Hello, friend. Thanks for reading.
