Ping Pong

He: Moral poetry? I don't believe in moral poetry.

She: What do you mean you don't believe in it? It's simply a sublimer form of moral beauty.

He: Moral beauty is wrapping your warmth around a shivering violet. Poetry is alabaster sunsets and overstated feelings.

She: That's cynical and simple. Besides, isn't what you just said one in the same?

He: No. Not really. The "moral" is in the action.

She: Yes, but bringing to life conscious feeling is action.

He: I suppose that's true. Well, I think I'll take the puppy for a walk. Where's the pooper scooper, love?

Add me to your cheerleading section for those poetic phrases others already cited!

Simply brilliant "action" ending. (Not an intentional pun on "end" from me, but oh ok, it seems "she" was already scooping the poop out verbablly...There's an art to communication and you scooped it out like well-churned, delectable ice cream to us.
