Novelty (a poem)

With chills of pleasure,

I savor the taste, the touch,

the sound, sight,

and odors evoked by a

cheeky warped view

that clearly sees

the brilliant pain of

mundane details

behind the bizarre.

I can’t wait to turn the page.


Inspired by the novel A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz

    Wendy, It must be a good book to inspire a new poem!

    It is a wonderful book, Susan! The kind of book that you savor line by line. A crazy story beautifully told. 🙂
