The mystery poet is surely seeking a haunt. What better place than the Yellow House? And why shouldn't he? He has been defamed, denigrated, and debunked. No wonder he resorts to hiding. And as to that glass of wine in his hand...better a glass in hand than an empty bottle in the bush.

Emily Dickinson had a special fondness for yellow houses. All great poets do. No wonder the mystery poet places himself behind a yellow house! Is he hiding? Or is he merely showing up to take his place amongst the poets who choose houses as bulwarks against slander? I'm not sure I've even spelled bulwark correctly, but it's the thought that counts, and without spell check I'm really lost.

So what's with this "click on yellow house for close up of mystery poet?" When I click on the picture, I get a close up of the house, but no poet. Even in your instructions, you deceive us. What has happened to credibility? Oy. It is gone.
