Noise does not disturb me, as I think that it gives a quaint atmosphere to a picture that fully matches my vision of nature and the wild species I like to photograph. – Laurent Baheux

At the moment off-centre,

This droll goes beyond my head,

Supermen vs bizarro,

Off the beaten track.

Erratic enough where freaky does not cut it,

Is this your pinnacle?

I see what I see,

We might differ upon rococo.

Simple ornamentals are not what they used to be,

Non-functional garnish is skin-deep,

How audacious venturesome festooned,

Normal becomes laughable.

Mystifying each setting very low,

All come to a level spaced-out,

Those who madcap a rolling oddball,

Reading silence or just noise of retrograde.

Bored witless testimony,

Queer someone’s lame pitch,

A rum blossom on their nose,

Seldom seen unwonted.

I used to be called a post-modern clown. But now, post-modernism is a quaint notion, too. Bill Irwin
