Hmmmm.... generous or ironic? Methinks this one can be read more than one way. Thanks for the Poetry Friday/Poetry Month ponderings.
Thanks, Robyn. You nailed it. Double entendre. Generous AND ironic. ;-)
Nice! I like the slightly creepy guy in the picture, too. I want to say to him, get your own muse!
Thanks, Ruth. That is a portrait of Baudelaire painted by Gustave Courbet in 1848.
Ha! I guess Baudelaire had his own muse. Sorry, Baudelaire.
