A Wit’s Proper End~by Charley Lyman



A Wit’s Proper End

Writing out of the Hole

Artwork by Ralph Steadman, posted on Pinterest

Now I find myself
in a hole I am writing
myself out of.

A poet opened
a window where I eat breakfast
and let irony in.

It blew in gales
of obscure metaphors leaving me
gasping for verbs…
for heart connectors.

My wiring is frying —
I am trying to dig myself
out of this mess with a pen
…with a pen.

Aye, with my wits.
