Rob Schackne #91 - Another Fine Mess

Another Fine Mess

Then welcome the ghost
that brought the mystery
install in your easy chair
supply with food and drink
put on some Shostakovich
show some recent poems

refrain from asking questions
let it be for at least an hour
you've always felt it…is that right?
do you mean we should be awed?

write the answers in invisible ink
ask her if she wants a shower

watch awhile from the other room
then go about your business.


  1. ô yes I know what it feels like! humorously said! and thumbs up for Shostakovich!!

  2. I like the idea of a ghost taking a shower
    Is that your photo? It is marvelous.

  3. it's great... early 20th century, hesitant, hopeful

  4. this is just great, the reflection on this process of mundanity.

  5. Thank you all for the kind comments. (Actually, Myron, it's a newspaper photo of the sky over Adelaide just the other day!)
