Wobbly Words

Poem from Wobbly Words zine, number 1, 1981.

Wobbly Words

Staring. It’s there
The black on the white,
The white on the black.
Letters make words and words make sentences,
But they’re mixed up, jumbled up, shook up.
WOBBLY WORDS
Silly sentences
No sense, nonsense
WOBBLY WORDS and silly sentences
But we all believe in the black and white.

Glaring. It’s there
The black on the white,
The white on the black.
Pictures make photographs and photographs make images,
But they’re mixed up, jumbled up, shook up.
Fidgety photographs
Insane images
No sense, nonsense
Fidgety photographs and insane images
But we all believe in the black and white.

Jo.
