Figure of Speech
“Mad world,
mad kings,
mad composition,”
said Shakespeare’s King John
speaking anaphorically.
Who could disagree
in those times
or in these
or in most times
in between.
It takes an abstraction
to show it clearly,
to figure it out.
A figure to illustrate it perfectly.
A figure that sums it up
A figure that says it all.
Texas Torso " ...that would not, from the borders of itself, burst like a star..." Rilke, ...
