Free verse by jay
How happy are bland, obvious omissions!
Occasional, odd, obvious omissions.
Now pungent is just the thing,
To get me wondering if obvious omissions are tasteless.
I saw them wipe clean disappeared my generation; destroyed,
How I mourned the absent.
Does the absent make you shiver?
I cannot help but stop and look at the big, recently revised.
Never forget the biggish and full-grown recent devised.
Pay attention to the little left,
the little left is the most wooly piece of land of all.
Are you upset by how soft it is?
Does it tear you apart to see what’s little left, so flocculent?
Polite prefaces, however hard they try,
Will always be biases.
Do polite prefaces make you shiver?
A has-been, however hard it tries,
Will always be has-been.
Does the have-beens make you shiver?
