That Fit, We Tint"

Siberia, USA: Today, global warming. Tonight, dark, unless you count the stars. Tomorrow can be reached via time machine. Yesterday, who can remember that far back?

The Mirror: Lowell ought not to be in the Canon?

Websafe: Hello?
Mirror: (She covers her mouth)
W: The Ancient Egyptians seem to have been obsessed with mouths, in their religious mythology.
M: I'm not trying to put pressure on you.
W: Good, but as long as I'm reading the Egyptian Book of the Dead anyway ...
M: I try to mirror people.
W: And you do a beautiful job of it.
M: But I think it is going swimmingly.
W: We are in perfect harmony.
M: It was a strain to live up to those expectations.
W: You're right, no one can remain harmonious for more than a few sentences.
M: Robert Lowell is more consonant a read than Berryman.
W: However, Harold Bloom feels that Lowell ought not to be in the Canon.
M: Are you talking about yourself in the third person?
W: I am not in the same company as Lowell or Bloom, alas.
M: No, you can try your best to explain neural networks to me.
W: I'm even less likely to be counted among the scientific minds of our generation!
M: The Round Table would have to answer that.
W: Yes, they were a literary bunch.
M: (Tie)
W: Bye!
M: Closing in 1 second ... Goodbye!
