The Sultan's Dream

The Sultan’s Dream (Part of Living Poem) When it comes to walking, the jig’s up.No more fit lad sitting at the pub.No more flim-flam smiling with a limp. See how the legs totter and the torso leans.Do you know what a lame sultan dreams?Of reclining on a divan wearing pantaloons, Comparing his plight to a mountaineer’sNegotiating an icy bluff in a fierce wind,And then lounging in a tent to unwind. Which…See More

An Unfurnished Mind

An unfurnished mind, for example mine, is fun to decorate.

You can throw anything you like inside; the dendrites find it great.

A furnished mind, one unlike mine, is lumbered with a grate

that blocks new input and is snide and can’t expectorate.

You cannot if you expectorate expect to highly rate

with those to whom infinitives split are calls to be irate.

(lines 11,317 through 11,322, volume 7, of imaginary novel Autonomous…
