My Whim-Wham, In Progress

Admit the performance, 
the drama of the "sigh" 
placed just so, "oh!"

may I occupy your eye
beg invasion of your seeing
I know your looking
will be keen

others though of capability

club together holding hands
but spying too, gather clout
in disavowal of my whim-wham

[Out of Bobby Frost's "TRNT" (1916) and a letter to RWE from sculptor Horace Greenough (12/28/1851).]
