COCKEYED: askew, crooked, intoxicated, absurd; marked by bends or angles; incongruous, not straight. In other words, Jim Christy, Canada's most iconoclastic and irreverent poet, views this cockeyed world the way it is; not only with 20/20 but x-ray vision and often through laughter and tears.
Oh, Mata, Mata, Gretha / Gretha, I boast no gold / Braid nor proud epaulets. / No fruit salad spilled / Across my chest. I don / Only the poet's uniform.
