Guest poem submitted by Will Chiong:
I remember being moved by this poem a long time ago, and it has a strange backstory, so I was hoping you could include it in your archive. This poem is presented as the dedication in the intro pages of Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby". The 'joke' is that D'Invilliers is a fictional character in Fitzgerald's first novel, "This Side of Paradise". I love this poem, though, as it is seems like a whimsical addition to Fitzgerald's masterpiece; but really sums up one of the book's most intriguing themes quite well. A great biography of Fitzgerald can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F_Scott_Fitzgerald Will.
