Every Weirdo

“Every weirdo

in the world

is on my

wavelength.”

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

strange

real queer

more than odd

a small bit quaint

weird

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

thunder and lightning

followed by

a deluge of rain

.

Poem:

.

pondering do I have a philosophy
conjuring up Socrates subconsciously
does my life really have a meaning
if I’m lucky I might just be dreaming

Dad said I should always be kind
love is what Mother brought to mind
can’t remember what the preacher said
the teacher tried to pound it into my head

good and bad are a matter of opinion
is there a God who has total dominion
what does ugly know about aesthetics
what percent of me is in the genetics

you lose if you were blinking
me, I was only winking
eureka, I got it when I heard the bell ringing
my philosophy requires no real thinking

it is what it is

Just Mine

“Poetry resembles metaphysics:

one does not mind one’s own,

but one does not like anyone else’s.”

.

~ Samuel Butler

.

.

Elfje:

.

metaphysics

ontology, cosmology,

and often epistemology

abstract concepts of being

philosophy

.

Haiku:

.

violent storm front

rain coming horizontal

birds know how to hide

.

Poem:

.

who would I choose for my other persona
would I want to be rich and powerful
could I be a humble saint with a bright corona
boring dull and drab or over the top colorful

was Hemingway the old man of the sea
was Coleridge really the ancient mariner
must I be a sailor or just a captain wanna be
could I pass myself off as a wandering foreigner

why just one, how about a new one every day
butcher, baker, candlestick maker
whatever whim or fancy that blows my way
a quiet quaker or an obnoxious shaker

could Thomas Pynchon make me into a flea
I guess I would just rather be little old me
