PART 2- Sonnets for 4/1 TEA TIME - rewatching BtVS episode #2: "The Harvest"

"Once More, With Adjustments"- Old Episodes & Older Eyes
[rhetorical verse in Shakesperean Sonnet Form]

PART 2: FROM BIG PICTURE TO. . . CHAOS?


(3) "THE HARVEST" WAS SUPPOSED TO BE the theme

of all my sonnet verses for today.

I watched it through, last night, but then this scheme

came to my mind . . . and hence this disarray.


Instead of finding things I want to praise,

I found myself distracted by each flaw.

A lust "to change it all" - go diff'rent ways

than Joss had gone (though that's against the law<g> ).


I make myself calm down and watch once more.

I try to love the Master's big bad style.

Though my blaspheming bottom's getting sore,

I look, and look, and look . . . but all the while . . .


. . . I keep imagining sweet Katie Holmes

in my Angelic face. . . Saliva foams. <ewg>


(4) AS YOU CAN SEE this verse has "lost its soul."

"The Harvest" matters not, to me. No more.

This sonnet must now seek some higher goal

to justify our time . . . Kick down a door . . .


. . . beyond the silly surface of desire.

Can our imaginations be set free

by Katie-lust? Can Holmes-love take us high'r?

Or are we playing pure insanity?


Perhaps like Buffy, down that road's our path.

But wait! That means the path Joss took was right.

Which means that all I've written needs new math.

And maybe I'm just higher than a kite. <g>


THE BOTTOM LINE'S we've got a 6th-year eye.

You can't "go Holmes" again. But, God, I'd try.
<ewg>
