Elliott Bay Cargo, by Susan K. MillerAs a clear escape
Beyond an ordinary Cyberpunk
Susan asked for
All manner of Liberties
and to enjoy
without disturbance,
a Renaissance Stud.

What should I call it?
or at least a Dexterity of wit!


is it real or fictitious
which produces our delight

Life is a Scramble,
and age challenges our power
to become exquisitely sensible.

. . . . . . . .

The OED online word of the day, complete with a citation from the 1991 issue of that ever-popular journal Renaissance Studies, is 'immunity.'

I trust I will be granted same :)

This is a poem to ponder!

LOL! I sort of thought it was one to snort at and walk away; once I saw "susan" and "renaissance stud." in the same section, i was a dead duck :)
