Love runs along the happy land

like a thick salami, a tsunami

of emotion, the very notion

slips and slides into the sand:

 

you reconcile, and all the while

you realise, with shock of surprise,

that a splash of blood in earthly mud

is all that’s needed. If unheeded

 

it doesn’t matter. The patter

of little feet men often greet

with sheer indifference.

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

Love the sonics....this sounds good without even thinking about the words. LOL the image of love running along the land like a thick salami is almost obscene but it made me smile. paeanic ode (the celebration of a life).... Another entertaining piece Brendan. Thanks....

Hmmm ... I try not to get too carried away! I'm playing around with sounds these days, as you have no doubt noticed, and I'm tremendously pleased you liked it. The salami was a bit naughty, I know, but the Brits will be clueless: it's not part of their slang.

There's a humour in much of your work-- and recent postings such as this-- hold interesting examples of composition to be noted, particularly the 'sounds'.
