The Wisdom of Others
Concerning Absurdity

"There is no idea, no fact, which could not be vulgarized and presented in a ludicrous light."

~~ Dostoevsky (1895)

"Few men, I believe, are much worth loving, in whom there is not something well worth laughing at."

~~ Julius Charles Hare and Augustus William Hare (1827)


"Ludicrous"

Not a single aspect
of the whole damn inquest
struck me funny

except you, making closing arguments
still wet from the shower;
naked, brandishing brown socks.

Then, all of it was.
