I found my portfolio from the early 1990’s–handwritten or typed hard copies that have never been committed to digital or electronic formats: Folders full of unpublished masterpieces, long forgotten but now discovered! I’ll be posting some of this material in days to come! This piece isn’t dated, but I guess it comes from around 1991 or 92.
Rendered in Blank Verse, cerca 1991
O, what vile, pestilent congregation
Of vapours descendeth upon this place!
Curling the hairs of my nostrils, clouding
My senses with the stench of decadent
Flatulence, suspended as noxious fumes
Drifting languidly in the atmosphere.
What oppressive, stifling element is
This I breath? Surely, my heart waxeth faint,
And I gasp for untainted sustenance
Ere I perish, choking on this foul blight!
