Poem: A Stray Sense of Comedy

Cento (collage poem)
Source Text:  The Midnight, by Susan Howe

The jester walked in the garden

with his luggage on his back.

A stray sense of comedy.

He particularly enjoyed the edges of woods,

neglected stretches of cucumbers,

the cat and spilled flowers.

The garden had fallen still—

A fine and flawlessly pastoral retreat.
