HALF PRETENDING

Wilde Observations #32

A tossed salad of art, poetry and ideas.

“A simile committing suicide is always a depressing spectacle.”
— Oscar Wilde

Abstract Notations

Ze foosh, de long
mit pain en strong
devourer of hopi hashzin prong
demolished night
in gales, the fright of fortune telling
waddle wales, inside fedrou
make comet zoo
the hour of frail Ignatian reels
and no one here
knows how it feels.

To half pretend
begin again
and read it through…
if it speaks to you
then maybe zeal
is part time real
dig double down
no fascist clown
will bitter pill and swall
the round.

If night be dark,
then make a spark and
portion out the feeble tark
of snaggled gum
aoof but dumb
misunderstand and
frag the rum.

Hicko how and blow the prow
no gathered grou
is with me now.
