Jejune.

abstract painting

Half thoughts and stupid words
phrases like ‘cackle of hens’
and ‘chugging out anger in drop C’
bounce around saying
clever! clever!

Maybe if I
play

up the enjambment,
or bre
ak the lines
(a riff raff
homage to E.E.
will emerge)

failing that,
call it a
retrospective exploration of
d
a
d
a
i
s
m

no one knows what that means;
clap-clap-clap
“we’re so moved by your effervescent ideas”
(looks like I pulled another fast one)
