Inspired by C.L. Suggs’ To Whom It May Concern, Mama Penguino crafted the following poem along the lines of Wallace Stevens’ celebrated and oft-interpreted Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird (1917). You can read the original here. Stevens was an influential modernist poet who did much of his important work later in life. Like Mama P., he toiled by day as a lawyer. Her comment takes on a special poignancy in light of her close relationship with Mr. Suggs.
Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Commenter
Among twenty pithy comments,
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the cursor.
