250 Recent (And Overly Decent?) Limericks (Paperback)
250 Recent (And Overly Decent?) Limericks is an evidently protracted attempt. The attempt is toward something like formal excellence. The form-in-question is (let's say) valid English, whereas the limerick form remains merely adventitious. Here beneath are a couple of sample limericks-and don't they manage to sweep along somewhat ridiculously? HELLO Hello and good-bye, little world of seeming to stay boyed and girled in manners and fashions whose finite new passions invite each ripe dream to seem swirled. GUITARS Guitars were restrumming themselves while waiting for happier shelves than visit the deadly new forms of a medley created by sleigh-bells and elves. A truly sincere and very profound hope might be that the entire collection could be savorable as individuations and as an aggregate.
