The solemn fool


Roller Coaster


For half a century

Poetry was the paradise

Of the solemn fool.

Until I came

And built my roller coaster.


Go up, if you feel like it.

I’m not responsible if you come down

With your mouth and nose bleeding.

(Nicanor Parra)

  1. As a metaphor for current politics this potentially is sans pareil. Trump as the roller-coaster builder taking no responsibility for the consequences of his actions, perhaps?
