Big Lift Ferry Poem F310

Is everyone
Who is brilliant –
Crazy in some kind of way?

Notes to this poem…


In a general sense, they probably are, whether due to their quirks and/or work ethic to have worked so hard to become that way. Listening to stories about such people, I often find myself reacting with something analogous to “that’s crazy” or “they’re crazy”, thinking about what they did and/or how they were in some ways.

Clinically, probably not, but given the number of deranged people who surprises people who thought they were bright, sometimes it seems that way.

The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
