more bad dreams, Dr Freud


Hurrying to drafting class
forgetting much needed pants

five free lessons, low-flying plane
clipping tree-tops in blinding rain

deadbeat Congress renews gravity funds
unsuspecting geese nose-dive to ponds

newly plastered hearth tilted and sunk
building permit forged by unscrupulous monk

hoisting sudsy pint to lips
white line weave with a halt and a skip

longing for a kiss ordained
amorphous amorous, a lopsided aim

Dr Freud died on this day in 1939


painting: Flying Down
David Salle (2006)

Alas poor Dr. Freud...

Graffiti in a coffee house ca. 1964:

"God is dead": Freud
"Freud is dead": God
Chicken Little was right!

Oh that's so sad, but Freud left us with wonders....and no more jetting out too quickly without your pants. What will the teacher say?!!!! Too funny, but so delightful to read as always!
