Art, Life, Trickster

Con-Men and Cwena…

*

Talking to door-knobs,

is one way of opening doors…

*

‘Maam, charmed,’ sez the Wolf-of-Oz,

oozing oblique obsequies,

rather than, ‘Alacazan!’

*

A coarse coercement, of course,

amid the unexpungeable stench

of paint-oil: ‘Serpentine’.

*

 Warning: jerk at work!

*

A snerk… A snarl…

so doggedly erased still

somehow manages to canvas

and convey the very image of selfdom.

*

Has our childhood Jester

finally come of age

by impersonating canines;

‘Ha-riff… Ha-riff… Ha-riff’?

*

Such tired tricks wane…

*

Before the fall,

camera clad grotesques

clamour to view his curtain call.

*

A skip, a hop, a ring

for the hands,

and Rumple…

gets-the-baby.

*

Again…

*

Cell doors, however,

are seldom quite so easy

to lubricate.

*

– Count Jack Black
