It’s Only “Weird” If… [Weird Wednesday Selection]

I are you and we are not Combat boots are left to rot Thrash the holy from the wheat Stack the stock in piles neat Refrain thy meek from honeyed dreams Sow thy saviors ‘tween the seams Left is up and down is fright The morn is black the black the light The night is ’til the way goes wrong The prisoner sings her victory song The song of prison the victor brings The victor’s prison the song shall sing — Not are we and you are I Wars of rot forever die Not are we and you are I Wars of rot forever cry Not are we and you are I Wars of rot forever lie Not are we and you are I Wars of rot forever try…

Blessed are the weirdos for weirdos all are we…

Well, this was fun. Thank you all for sharing your wonderful weird words with us.

Speaking of weird…

Did any of you notice how often the word “weird” is used in Murakami’s The Wind-up Bird Chronicles? It’s rather weird.


Yes, weird has a scale and some of you are a tad bit weirder than others.

Thankfully so, for it allows me great pleasure to present to you the weird that struck me the weirdest, which, in this context is a wonderful thing…

Its only weird……
Mandy Moran

I hear you ask for weird….
When all around is calm and still
There is no ripple in the waters light
Just the moon and its luminous reflection

How can I interpret weird….
Is not for lack of imagination
When suddenly the water erupted its sleep
With a crash of a hat and limb

The water felt hot like treacle
Pulling through its gulp
Bittersweet with its welcome hold
Lumps, glue, sticky and yet free

Time is but an essence
Each day bringing the weird and wonderful too
Give the weird a chance
For all things need a balance….

Capture the opposite, encounter the within
The moon has a light but dark prevails
Water will flow until its sealed
As we feel the weird from deep held in…….


Mandy, if you’re interested in a digital edition of one of my selections at Amazon let me know.

Thanks for all the wonderful weird everyone!

    Kurt, “The morn is black the black the light” is really working for me. That’s a touchdown. Mandy, you tied it up with a bow when you said “Water will flow until its sealed/As we feel the weird from deep held in.” Nice work!

  3. What is weird to one person is perfectly normal to another. SO subjective!
