TEA TIME SONNETS #147-150 of 154
Rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form


TWO LET GO


(1) I'LL SPEND TONIGHT regretting what was lost.

Two lines of verse that crystalized my thought

across the Buffyverse . . . A Pentecost

of flaming inspiration that had brought . . .


. . . transcendent revelation to my tongue.

I spoke them in the shower. Knew them cold.

They chimed their notes so well you'd think they'd sung

a tune I would remember 'till I'm old.


No need to stop relaxing in the flow

of streaming water . . . cleansing 'way the sweat

of disciplined exersions's afterglow.

I thought the lines secured within the net . . .


. . . of memory. So I felt there's no need

to rush out of that shower with great speed.

(2) I'M SURE there's times that happened to Joss, too.

And Marti Noxon. Ev'ry writers' curse

is always to have notepads . . . 'cept the few

times that you don't.
You scream. There's nothing worse . . .


. . . than losing the best thought you've ever had

right down the drain where it goes out to sea.

I guarantee the next idea is bad.

That's how a writer learns the cruelty . . .


. . .of fate that writers deal with . . . with each choice

of color on their palette they now dab

and brush upon their canvas. Then rejoice

for one artistic vict'ry in their lab . . .


. . . of existential beauty codified

within their private matrix where they hide . . .


(3) . . . from harsh reality where death is death.

Instead of worlds where death can be reversed.

Like Buffy's world where she's had her least breath

three times (I think) and feels not blessed but cursed . . .


. . . to be a pawn of those who need her face.

No matter if that's Willow or it's Joss.

NO PEACE for Buffy's soul in either case.

Their frameworks cannot take their slayer's loss.


YES, sentences can paint the world again,

BUT ev'rything that's written's not believed.

The rhetoric you choose won't always win,

no matter if you ego is deceived.


And tragic'ly, the ones that slip your mind

are ones that you should not have left behind.


[CONTINUED BELOW]



4 of 4 (sonnet sequence) SAVING THE WORLD cont.
Posted by: forensicpopouri - May 21, 2002, 2:48 AM 7 of 11


(4) THERE'S ALWAYS forward strokes that you can take,

but some lead to high falls . . . or calm dead ends.

YET in forgotten lines left in your wake

are ripples that may yet make full amends . . .


. . . and bring transcendence after your regrets

have filled your night of longing for lost lines.

THE TRUTH is that whatever one forgets

was fated to come back when one refines . . .


. . . the soul that wasn't ready to move on

to higher levels of what God has planned.

YES even in the case fo whining Dawn,

there will arise amidst chaotic sand . . .


. . . some sweet felicity somone forgot.

Like those two lines tonight I liked a lot.


[THE END]

NOTE: The insane idea of putting Buffy thoughts
in Shakespearean sonnet form . . . is based on the even more
insane idea that you might want to give it a try yourself.
