The Point




The point about the reading was the reading...


The point about the reading was the reading
The point was that the time was out of joint
The point about the point was half the meaning
The point about the reading was the point

The point about the pointing was the winning
The point was pointing something out instead
The point was it was there from the beginning
The pointing gesture meant read just ‘as read’

We pointed out that pointing can be testing
We pointed out that pointing isn’t crude
We pointed out that pointing’s interesting
And that the point was pointing wasn’t rude.

The point is points are methods of anointing
The point was plain in ways that points just are
We pointed out the point, it needed pointing
(We pointed that out later in the bar.)

But did he take the point of all our pointing?
We fear he didn’t, which was disappointing.

This reminds me of Picasso's female nude "point" which was:

But I must dash -
The big match is on.
