Between the sublime and the ridiculous

How do you balance the sublime and the ridiculous?
Do you laugh out loud at scatological jokes?
Do you nod when Plato is discussed?
I do all of these. Maybe that’s why
I don’t know how to balance
the sublime and the ridiculous.

Do you miss a party to read a book?
Do you go to plays and understand them?
Do you dance when popular numbers come on?
I do all of these. Maybe that’s why
I don’t know how to balance
the sublime and the ridiculous.

Do you discuss books in your blog?
Do you post unwanted quizzes?
I do both. Maybe that’s why
I don’t know how to balance
the sublime and the ridiculous.

Do you like Neruda’s poetry?
Do you like Rahman’s music?
Do you laugh at forwarded jokes?
Did you try your hand at poetry?
I do all of these. Maybe that’s why
I don’t know how to balance
the sublime and the ridiculous.
