A Reasonable Facsimile

A Reasonable Facsimile

that’s what Myron’s mother called him –
a reasonable facsimile ,
of his brother, that is,
in that his brother
was preternaturally unreasonable
if his brother was the weather
his mother said
he would be deemed unseasonable
his actions were incomprehensible
reprehensible, irredeemable
so based on the principle
that no praise is too faint
Myron was amenable
to being called
a reasonable
facsimile of his brother.

    This brought a smile almost instantly. I love all the en-abling words, as it were, and the dry tone which contrasts perfectly. Irredeemable and unseasonable, and utterly enjoyable.

    What a wonderful movement of words here. I read it a second time aloud.
    And these words…..
    “if his brother was the weather
    his mother said
    he would be deemed unseasonable”
    what a FABULOUS description you’ve given here.
    Enjoyed this post very much!
