Poem for April 28, 2008 – Tone Poem with Felicitous Devotion

Tone Poem with Felicitous Devotion

man’s anger voice and love
april’s tambourine obliges
for the low and the sweet lay
a messy saucer of booze

another drink with a dicey duchess
another friend with tender gin
may’s the month of the jovial couches
of sullen lust of naive soirees

too soon the quail’s solar care dies
for man that weepy shaman
eat these birds ok and men of business
and two memoirs of charlemagne

june’s mauve anger melts
the knees while fools dither
god devours lions called from their dens
the gallantones ring of torn felines
–Basil Cartryte

Oh, Basil. You mix 1918 dada with 1880 French symbolism, and think you’ve made something daring and new.
