A collaborative poem between Cheryl Penn and myself over a period of some weeks.

I happened upon here,


by the Strangest Way.

Convolutions/twists/turns

– we count (the cost of: oomph!)

– we watch … {the impact of ([W]ow!)}

and use to (EX-)[dot]com//-municate;

in as big a cacophony as can be muster(e)d!

I never said

WHAT???

I miss the strangest way.

Where sense is by choice

The way (W)-here // one needn’t

go …

Obicropolitious, WHY

the strangest way

How views have altered:

Feminist revisionism holds

This new old so͝ul

swigging sherry

husking harvested linseedreally.

Æting sunflower seeds,

bought at the shop

dates, tightly packed,

cheap at the price,

sorted

by paid labour.

Chewing over ÁnŞcienŧolog¥:

Princess Charming should’ve left

Cupid (What an Ass!) to his mother.

I’m taking it –

revisionism

in its relative scent 2B

relatively relevant?
