Every once in a while I come across some bit of writing in which I understand each word the the total effect makes me scratch my head. One that has stuck with me from my high school days was a short poem written by a guy named Andy Weinberger.
“A pterodactyl lingers in a cosmos of nucleonic spheroids.”I am not a big poetry reader, as you can tell since this is one that stuck with me, but I like it. I don’t know what happened to Andy but here he lingers in my cosmos.
Recently I came across another by a writer named Sarah Hoyt:
“They are in a way right while being so wrong they’re not even wrong.”Something about that seems so right.
