Day Three Hundred and Thirty One: Mr Leonard

Wee bit of Tom Leonard for y’all today. A truly wonderful poet.

Poetry
by Tom Leonard

the pee as in pulchritude,
oh pronounced ough
as in bough

the ee rather poised
(pronounced ih as in wit)
then a languid high tea …

pause: then the coda –
ray pronounced rih
with the left eyebrow raised
– what a gracious bouquet!

Poetry.
Poughit. rih.

That was my education
– and nothing to do with me.
