Me and Dauphy have branched out into story telling. No need for all you brilliant authors to worry though. My main interest is in poems, and because I am what Dauphy would call a lazy monkey by nature, there is no danger of any War and Peace type novel appearing here any time soon.
These stories will be limited to the six word format and will be posted sporadically. Much will depend upon how inspirational Dauphy is feeling.

I can not claim the credit for this short story. It was the title of a song written by Cole Porter way back in 1929. It was recorded by many people including Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. It is a great story, because again it shows how punctuation can change entirely the meaning of the words.
The big question What! Is this thing called love? or What is this thing called? Love? or What is this thing called love?
This story shows the importance of punctuation, even on the shortest of pieces…
