Windcombomb: A Humorous Dickinsonian Poem - Poem by Nathan Coppedge

Windcombomb, windcombomb
Whether you are the wind that slows the bomb...
Or the man who thinks with said wind
That is really inspiration...

Topic(s) of this poem: inspiration

Form: Ars Poetica

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I found the word Windcombomb, and thought it meant some kind of insult. But apparently, the word has not been defined before. Perhaps it means someone inspired by ideas, but nonetheless empty-headed. Or, maybe it means a pretender. Or maybe it means an actual genius. For example, Newton hit with an apple could be a Windcombomb. Or a perpetual motion inventor.
