a panegyricium

This is what it is. Past poetics echoed? The Panegyric Oratory: praise or eulogy?

study for a marchess

JW Waterhouse, “study for a marchess,” 1914


I require a bit of laudanum afore I pontificate

Panegyric oration doth make my brain most thirstily in deed

Whatever the venue; whatever the script

Whether disseminated on a leafy knoll

Cross-legged under the stargazer trees

Or  espoused from the isle beach stained 

with lustrous bioluminescence,

Atop tempestuous winterous mountain range

with full-sun with heat of poached egg yellow yolk

For always I am fraud; I speak the untruths

There, holding forth, spite jerky efforts to

force me off the stage, out of the play

Remaining forever the xenolith thorn in her mind

Always a slice, a sliver, a trace of me.
