One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Toads! I hope this charming video for Sir Paul McCartney's catchy song "Dance Tonight," featuring Natalie Portman and Mackenzie Crook and directed by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), inspires. I rather love it and hope you like it, too.
If you are game, please share with us a new poem about dancing with ghosts, mandolin-fueled hootenannies, postal carriers drinking tea, Paul McCartney's music career and/or life, or whatever other wonders this video brings up for you. I look forward to reading your poems!
