irony and ambiguity  

Monday, November 24, 2008

The theme for this week in my poetry seminar was irony and ambiguity. Actually the tutor was away this week, but we did a pretty good job of holding the seminar without him there. Anyway, it really made me laugh when my friend said words to the effect of this sonnet:

One Twelfth

I’m so excited.
He wants to spend Christmas with me
and my whole family.

We read the same books
and eat the same foods
and he’s taking me to Italy in March;

Amsterdam in May.
He’s so good for me
and I feel better now I have him.

Tonight’s our one month anniversary.

Perhaps I am an old cynic?!
