Rob Schackne #412 - Diogenes, Or, A Reply To Kit

Diogenes, Or, A Reply To Kit

The ekphrastic
the poem he's writing
wishes to describe what
it really means to write about

(one hundred years ago)
a painting of some old bloke
(two thousand years ago)
writing some old poem
bathhouse on his mind
stinking in a barrel
like a 3-day-old fish
who when he isn't thinking 
he's had too much to think
sees honest women everywhere
