“This is the way the world ends Not with a bang, but with a mortgage payment”

By Harriet Staff

The St. Louis Riverfront Times takes a look at the recently-purchased childhood home of T.S. Eliot (cat statue (pictured above) included):

Eliot lived in this house when he wrote his first poem at the age of 15, a school exercise which was later published in the Harvard Advocate, the university’s student magazine. Ugh, some poetry prodigies are just such show offs.
