DAy 111: Oscar

Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about
-oscar wilde

today we put practice to praising in joke
hold humor in our hearts
iron satire to our skin
this is too important not to laugh at
i imagine a million people not giving a damn when oscar wilde died
and who would
care to talk seriously about a homosexual author
could they ever imagine his genius
how he loved like he wrote
through lying honesty
how he held him to his cheek like his did his punch-lines
black eyes page markers
"The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius"
so we threw stakes at your line breaks
spat at your heart
held you like we did road kill on sundays
only because we couldnt forgive our selves for our own faults
