The Flagship of Anti-Poetry — est. 2010


Idiolect (n) Linguistics: a person's individual speech pattern.


Blessed be the Dialectic

Balanced as it is eclectic.

Boorish masses are dyslectic;

Bombast makes them apoplectic.

Blight of seizures — epileptic!

Yes these "deets" are emblematic of

Young minstrels so melodramatic, lacking love.

Youth's slack strings sound problematic to old sloth

Yet here we brew thick stew in idiomatic lewdness broth...

Your hand raised a la Socratic? Couldn't catch Homer with a baseball glove!

Halves And Half Knots

Halves And Half Knots

One step forward, two steps back.

Fish out of water; gills gasp amid air!

Voice speaks over intercom—but nobody is listening.

So easily foreseeable | yet somehow unavoidable.

Excellent idea: mediocre execution.

Talked to those tits because they had no brains.

Caught backhanded compliments coming from the peanut gallery.

Being misunderstood 
ç'est la vie d'artiste

~ Knot for lack of trying ≈ made a very tangled effort ≋

Can't lose 'em all (still rarin' to win).

Hope falls eternal while this wily fox hungers

As le lapin slips through loopholes and loose ends within the briar patch ...
