This is a found poem, sent along by a colleague after doing a catalog search for a book on chess. During the search, by dropping off the "w" in "winning" and searching "inning" along with the rest of the title, this is the lovely, lyrical result:
INNING is not in any titles.
Therefore "INNING" is discarded.
CHESS is not in any titles.
Therefore "CHESS" is discarded.
THE is not in any titles.
Therefore "THE" is discarded.
EASY is not in any titles.
Therefore "EASY" is discarded.
WAY is not in any titles.
Therefore "WAY" is discarded.
With Lao Tzu, one is tempted to title this "The Way" (that is not the Way) ...
Thanks to Amy, who also provided this wonderful poetic epigraph for Past All Traps:
jesus christ, wentworth,
your lame goddam poetry
annoys me like fuck.
the lake is slowly
lost in mist...
