Gasbag

A torrent comes

And goes…

It knocks me out.

 

Please, understand…

Prufrock

With his brown eyes

I do not wish to be him

Who recites a word like it was

Homer’s; like he were speaking the words of Beowulf’s monk;

Like Milton’s Paradise Lost were his,

Like he authored the Inferno.

The word he said was more like a fart joke

Than high poetry.

 

If seen,

If viewed…

Please don’t patronize polished turds.
