Good Wood

Good Wood

A Poem by mick weller
"

...must have been reading Gertrude Stein...

"

It is good wood,

grey wood.

Good and grey wood.

Would you buy some..?

Good and grey wood?

 

Hmm?  It is good wood.

Straight, good wood.

Good and grey wood.

 

Hmm..? How much?

 

How much is my good wood -

my grey wood?

Have the lot. Make me an offer.

Any offer.

 

It is Good. Grey wood.

 

Yes it is good. Grey wood,

I can see.

Just one thing...

Why is it grey?

 

It comes from a good and grey tree.

A very good tree.

A grey tree

 

Is it a good and grey tree?

 

Yes. A very good tree.

 

A grey tree?

 

A very grey tree.

 

But not very grey wood...

 

Just grey wood,

from a very grey tree.

I had a dream - I woke to find my engine had been stolen by fairies... this negotiation was an attempt to try and get it back....

What an unusual writer you are - and, that's meant as a compliment!

I can hear this, it really echoes in the mind. There's a wonderful beat to it, ok - meter and all that techincial stuff - but it gains momentum as one reads.. then, still leaves room for yet more of it . The repitition, the echoing words.. ah... it's like hearing a train going along the railway track...

What an unusual theme too!

Thank you, thank you.

Yes you have been reading Gertrude Stein but all the better for it. It's a wonderful dialogue that amuses and resonates, obviously you could be talking about anything but I think it's more about the relationship between those conversing. What is good? Does grey mean it's any less good? These are both nonsensical but important questions.

Many thanks for sharing

I find myself reading. Several of your poems now and I have nothing to leave. No clever words, nothing, just this note to let you know I've been here reading about words unsaid and beautiful balloons and good grey wood.

lmao.....so how did you fare with the fairies??? They don't usually like to give things back!!! This was hilarious. I'm not even exactly sure why....but it sucked me in and kept me hangin' in for more! Damn fairies! ; )


(a private note to the fairies: I don't really mean to damn you. I love you. Hey...where are you going with that!?!? Wait...come back...come back!!!)
