full (of sweet words)

Poem #54 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.

Back to Bachelard and me – Introduction


he wrote a line

bent low down
sniffed
till he could taste it

high

wrote another line
another stanza
read the words aloud
declaimed them

high

he crazed
across a lined page
such cheap cheap paper
his words
so dear

smelt them

said them

drank them in and drank them up

he’s so overfull of sweet words
he’s a drunkard
a hophead
a user
a pusher

he’s
so

high
