I love the ping pong alls bouncing around the table. Happy New Year Clever Guy.

I liked it. Not as Hard to read as EE Cummings Grasshopper (no I am not going to replicate his form because at the moment I don't remember how he spelled everything.) but I liked this very much John.

Old 333,
Fun is the idea. I'm always playing games with language!

Lynn,
Happy New Year to you too! Thanks for playing.

walking man,
I just love ee cummings work. If I remember it correctly, here's one of his typographic poems:

behold the working(s) of a mind playing....
great stuff....
loved the round the table read and the bouncing balls and the (relative) absence of an whacking implement, all the more for the whacky imagination... oh, and the net, nice touch, especially not having one ( a safety net, i mean ... hah!)

the walking man said...

That was wonderful. I had never seen that Cummings piece.

I've been working my way through Carl Sagan's Cosmos series from the 80s. "The edge of forever" episode, which I just watched, makes several references to the Upanishads. Endless regressions, and infinite cycles of creation and destruction. I feel echoes of it in this poem.

jon,
u do find ways to extract from language much more than just dictionary meanings...and it IS fun...cheers..

Jon Parsons said...

Harlequin,
Thanks! And don't you worry... there's a paddle there somewhere!
;)

walkingman,
Glad you liked buddy. Here's a site with a good selection of his poetry if you're interested:

Francis,
Endless regression... I like that. Hmmm. Having a bit of lightening in the old brain here now... thanks!

manik sharma,
Glad you like this kind of stuff. It's lots of fun to write too!
