Quiescent, a Person Sits Heart and Soul -- Ring Lardner

       
(Poem #928) Quiescent, a Person Sits Heart and Soul
 Quiescent a person sits heart and soul
 Thinking of daytime and Amy Lowell.

 A couple came walking down the street;
 Neither of them had ever met.
-- Ring Lardner
To quote the inimitable Calvin[1], "I try to make everyone's day a little more
surreal". And the equally inimitable Ring Lardner is surely a fitting weapon
of mass surreality - today's poem has the kind of inspired idiosyncracy that
leaves the reader wondering just how it was pulled off.

Indeed, I find it impossible to say just what it is about this poem that I
like. On the face of it, it is just a couple of random images stuck together
and called a poem. It is not even, as might be expected, a parody of Lowell
(or if it is, I'm missing it). There's just something about the perfect
balance of incongruity and poker-faced pointlessness that appeals to me.
