Sonnets To Chris1966Marble nor monuments whereof then we spoke

We speak of more; spasmodic as the wasp

About my windowpane, our short songs rasp-

Not those alone before their singers choke-

Our sweetest; none hopes now with one smart stroke

Or whittling years to crack away the hasp

Across the tickling future; all our grasp

Cannot beyond the butt secure its smoke.A Renaissance fashion, not to be recalled.

We dinch 'eternal numbers' and go out.

We understand exactly what we are.

...Do we? Argent I craft you as the star

Of flower-shut evening: who stays on to doubt

I sang true? ganger with trobador and scald!

.: :.

It means: We don't write poetry like Shakespeare did in his 55th and 38th sonnets and a b-load of his and othern's sonnets back in the day, namely to reach for immortality. We've given up that stuff and now instead we tweet. I think "dinch" is a portmanteau of drench and ditch: I'm quite taken with dinch: it's a particularly twitty word. Ganger with trobador and scald I'm not even going to mess with right now. I got twit to do today, man, I can't be picking apart these Barrymanisms all day.
