Merely Christmas

Cross Over
Pound knew too well that old yuletide season,
the worms, the vermin, the varmits, the reason
they crept the cold ways
of conniption fit days
for a wall that leaked like a lesion.

My computer is working better, I think, so maybe I'll get back into my daily routine composing limericks for an obscure literary aim.

Intriguing. I wonder if there might be a way to write limericks without rhyme? Could that be the way these Extra-Pound pieces are trajecting? At this point in the series, I am oblivious to the rhyme anyway, as the quirky progressions of your syntax fully occupy the activity of my reading.

I'm happy your computer has settled down.

Merry Christmas, Jeffery!
