Narcissist on the Shores of Lake Placid


Smoothie, spill but

One drop of oil on
To the surface

And watch it
Disperse it

Self in the firmament.

  1. Do I detect a whiff of a Seferis haiku? But no. His has the fragrance of wine or ink, not oil.... ;-)

  2. Your olfactory perception is equal to your poetic one, my friend; this so happens to be part of a series of small poems I'm currently sniffing out to see if they can cut the mustard and thus make the cut for the varsity; it doesn't look too promising for most of them, primarily because yours truly is still a second-string player while our mutual friend Seferis was and still remains top-notch. I guess it's back to the smelling-salts mines until I come to my senses. Sniff, sniff and sigh. :-(
