More Bewildered Than Ever
“The more you explain it, the more I don’t understand it.” ~Mark Twain
You really tend to obfuscate
and also circumnavigate
whatever points you try to make.
I’m so confused, for heaven’s sake.
Just tell it to me plain, I beg.
You disregard. Instead, you segue
into more purple tosh. Headshake.
I’m mystified, for heaven’s sake.
I wonder if you truly know
of what you speak, but even so
the way you say it? Too opaque.
I’m so perplexed, for heaven’s sake.
I guess it doesn’t matter if
you speak in English or in glyph,
I will not understand your take.
I just give up, for heaven’s sake.
Notes: The form is Kyrielle (with a tiny bit of modification.) The poem was inspired by the theme of 'more' at Khara House's 30 by 30 Challenge.
