Best Poem of Rev. Rebecca Guile Hudson

Real Work (The Brilliant Fool)

He
was a piece
of work,

His life a
work of art

He was
a brilliant fool
masquerading as genius

Or, perhaps,
a stellar genius
just acting
the fool

He wore his success
like a stagnant, rotting albatross
around his neck,

its stench his constant
companion and
splendid cologne

His Life Portrait was
surreal,
abstract, askew

Each and every
moment of his moments

engorged with
gleeful rage and
upcoming root-canal ...

Read the full of Real Work (The Brilliant Fool)

Summer Return

the sounds of summer
starting up
in the revving, humming engines
of lawnmowers thawing out
from the long winter’s freeze

the voices of children
carried on the evening distances,
reveling in

[Hata Bildir]
