Portraits in Motion
Please be advised: Fauxetry is renegade kin to the fine arts (it’s rumoured), irreverent in the presence of convention, contemptuous toward scholar and dunce alike. Lawless. Gung-ho. Truly appreciated by the scant few, yet undeterred in crusade.
Universal translators will remain offline – fauxetry is untranslatable.
portraits in motion:
a foem, by guest blogger BBK, from the BigBlogOfKnowledge<<link).
Information traffic on the mindly interstate
worn out lines
an on-ramp meant to obviate.
of no design at all.
The metaphor’s been done before
but it’s the most descriptive way
to draw the system of my mind.
“Great minds all think alike,” it’s said
but I would rather like to contend
that nothing is more untrue instead.
Great, feeble, simple, grand:
in the sand
the mind is too complex to draw.
The interstate is my representation
yours may be Grand Central Station
or a basement
full of shelves and books
a hallway riddled with crannies and nooks!
It’s your own mind for goodness sake
no one way is Scripture
it’s your own goddamn canvas
go ahead- paint your own mental picture.
yours truly, BBK
fauxetry: atrocious metrical writing : faux poet : words that may or may not rhyme : spontaneous composition : foem’s content is flattering to the faux poet only : reader response varies from annoyance, to ridicule, to nausea.
