Dead Poets Society #65
The Shortest Novel of Them All by Norman Mailer
At first she thought she could kill him in three days.
She nearly did. His heart proved unequal to her compliments.
The she thought it would take three weeks. But he survived.
She revised her tables and calculated three months.
After three years, he was still alive. So they got married.
Now they've married for thirty years. People speak warmly of them.
They are known as the best marriage in town.
It's just that their children keep dying.
