wind soliloquy

wind soliloquy

A lot of it about. What does it? Pulls a tree’s ears.
Slaps a child, else we’d never know it’s about.
i lost an argument to it in December.
Did much huffing // puffing— what cares the wind?
Doesn’t do right angles nor algebra. Blew Euclid
into squiggles. War on toupees. War on litter & smog.
Skirt-lifter. Chair-toppler. Cheeky beggar.
Blew grit in granny’s teeth: no moral code.
Nepalese wind is edible, i knew a monk
who lived on it. Too transparent for government.
Its sick of being a euphemism for fart.
The hamster cannot use its treadmill if the window’s open.
The blow in every note. Crick in every neck.
Hindus call it Vayu & prana, it’s vital.

    1. He can have more but as he blows through all things i’d write nothing but wind poems.
