At the edge of bitterness, il gusto, mia lingua, il caffè macchiato and I see the words, pietro colorato I might drown in italiano.

Arrangements missed, dissed, unmade

I rather liked the Wikipedia entry for deranged:  ‘Deranged may refer to psychosis, a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a “loss of contact with reality”. Deranged may also refer to: In films: *Deranged (1974 film) a 1974 American horror film. *Deranged (2012 film) a 2012 South Korean science fiction, [...]
