basil is no clown

in a world of common clownery
abstractly tossed tomfoolery
a desperate bid for scenery
that turns it all to remedy
And here stands Basil…

      Oh my gosh, you are so generous! Thank you!
      And I was just going to write to you…was just chatting with your friend Davy D about your ‘back side of the night’…Charles invited me to join in. Anyway, I was re reading a poem from a couple months ago I could rework to fit it, but wondered if mostly pre written is okay?

        There are no rules on the backside of night! LOL.

        I was just floored reading your Nick Cave post, this is why taking the time to read the back catalogs matters so much. Thank you.

        AND I was trying to work my way back to a very thoughtful comment you wrote that I didn’t respond to, which is a big foul in my book.

        Alas… reprocess, rework, renew, recycle, reuse, repeat, go for it on the backside of night!

    Back to the beginning Vanessa and this was where the blogging adventure began. It all becomes clear now. Is that a donkey or an ass? Was it a rat or a hamster?

      Ah yes, the million dollar questions in life.
      I am happy to say that he was most definitely a donkey. I love donkeys. He was beautiful, and wise and sweet and patient. And obviously photogenic. And I am so intrigued by the story of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on one as well. Look at the humble profundity in its eyes πŸ™‚ Well, if this were a better photo you would see it.
      haha thanks so much for visiting this spot Davy!

            I agree Vanessa, I think working through the back posts gives you more insight into the soul and journeys of the writers / poets. I am thinking of doing a “hanging out with” series on Thursdays on my favourite blogs along the lines of the one I did with Mr. S. Everyone gets a free T Shirt. Would you be up for a feature one week?
