This poet reminds me of Suzanne Buffam of the “Little Commentaries” section of The Irrationalist. A distinguishing characteristic is the turn. Here is one in full — I like how the title reads as a first line so that the whole is structured like a miniature ode with strophe, antistrophe and epode.

Reality, of continuing interest

The highway patrol often overestimate
the speed of a car painted red

Persons subject to leadfoot
often drive red-coloured cars

David Bromige. Tiny Courts in a world without scales.

And for good measure one from Suzanne Buffam. One that also provides a turn.

On Suicide

People who commit suicide don’t fail to believe in life.
They fail to believe in death.

One could gorge oneself on such epigrams.

And so for day 1048
