  • I like sonnets.  I may give this one a whirl.  It may be about bare-chested men drinking around a 98-362 fire.

    4 Thoughts on “An opportunity, if not an assignment

    1. Good luck. When I shop for sonnets, I look for durability. Like the stones Malloy carries in his pockets. I want to be able to take one out and suck on it whenever I feel like and not worry that it might dissolve or erode noticeably. That’s a good test to know how you’re doing.

    2. I might as well post my effort:

      My back yard. Night. The vernal equinox.
      We sit, all men, around a fire of oak
      and last year’s Christmas tree. Our talk unlocks
      our thoughts, and musings sift through light and smoke.
      We drink. We talk: our lives, and what’s to do.
      We talk of art and music, God and cause.
      Someone’s removed his shirt. Now I have too.
      I don’t know why this comforts, but it does,
      to sit bare-chested, flesh exposed like mind
      around the crackling light. Another drink—
      I want to know if all these thoughts behind
      these other chests can make me see, not think.
      These men I love, and more than that, require:
      we slowly start to move around the fire.

      Durable? I doubt it. But it is a sonnet.

    3. I love this.

    4. Perfectly fine effort. Well iamed, too. “Flesh exposed like mind around the crackling light.” Very nice bit, that.
