the cracking

weather

on all fronts"

  1. What it WCW? Why count women? Where commences Wiona? What climbs warily?

  2. He means William Carlos Williams, o foreign-sounding person...
    it's either that or Walgreen's Cream for Women
    it helps avoid that cracked-leather look all-over


    Sunday Poetry Brunch?
    (new poetry at Flaneur)

  3. Duh!
    Thanks Ray Man! (Though actually I like Walgreen's Cream for Women better--I'm gonna get some today! Chlorine--it's skin's worst enemy!)

  5. If you read this with an Elmer Fudd voice, it's "Wesist the cwacking weather," in which case WCW stands for Wesist Cwacking Weather...

    The quotation marks suggest that this is found poetry--an excerpt from a letter, perhaps. Found poetry is Williams-like, but opacity isn't. "I wanted to write a poem/ that you would understand..."

    I'm not saying the poem is opaque. I think I "got it," but apparently CJ found it cryptic.

  6. I heard this one in Claymation--"Cracking idea, Gromit!"
