a word is dead when it is said, some say  
I saw this book in the bookstore the other day:

https://store.mcsweeneys.net/products/the-emily-dickinson-reader

And I know I'm supposed to think it's clever or ironic or postmodern or something, but actually I just want to punch this book in the face. I can't even figure out why I dislike it so much, or say anything that articulately expresses my feelings about it (books don't even *have* faces!). Whenever someone brings it up, what comes to mind is "I want to punch that book in the face."

Lost in translation
So that isn't a joke? I weep for this world.
Punch it twice, once for me.
