VISIBLE CRUELTY (8-sonnet sequence)
PART 3


(5) GOOD LORD, will this long verse analysis

go on until we reach One Fifty Four?

The count of times that Shakespeare chose to kiss

the sonnet stone . . . until he closed the door . . .


. . . on fourteen lined poems for his patron's grace.

WELL , LET'S PUT IT THIS WAY, I've sworn to reach

that self same number . . . so I've up the pace

with which I crank the wheel. The speed "I teach" . . .


. . . "the victims" in the "verse conspiracy."

The Bronze environment (with all its flaws)

inspired me to quite pure insanity

of bringing to that chaos, some strange laws . . .


. . . in theory that a "stange attractor" could

produce some good effects. Hmmm, well, knock wood.


(6) But now that I've explained why I write on

into the hours when only Dracula

and his dark kin raise up to smile, condon,

the labor of this verse. I'm drunk. Ha ha.


Well, not on beer (not yet, but that may come),

but on the juice that comes from your own voice

when bottled in verse form. My rule of thumb

is make your case quick so the rest rejoice.


But sometimes you don't stop. Propriety

must sometimes be just kickboxed like poor Spike

when Buffy goes insane and jams her knee

into his private places. "Take a hike!"


BUT, BLOODY HELL, what happened to the show?

I'm glad you mentioned that . . . back there we go.
