Do you dare do Dickens?


I could claim this is a touch of lightning the tone of things in my blogcasa, but all things considered, I’m not sure that’s exactly accurate. Afterall Charles Dickens did delve into some  very dark hearts and minds in his writing adventures. So–I won’t claim an effort of offering some comic relief with this advertising of a poetry challenge over at Echostains’ artistic musings.  You can surf there via Mr. Dickens’ mug shot just for the illustrations and chatter.  Kick around the artwork for a bit and decide if you’d like to poem play with some Dickenson devious delight for everyone’s bemusement–or bewilderment.  My only decent for public consumption–so far–poetic devilment prompted by Dickens is residing at Echostains’ Bookstains. IF I can clean up my poem-making regarding this poetic drama I will post my most respectable effort here. Yes, I am trying hard to refrain from that ‘mature audiences only’ rating. It’s been tough though as my mind seems to have decided it only wants to swim in the gutter rut of what’s in a name like Dickens’.

o damn,

suggestive wink winks are all I can think
