Five Poems from MONOLOGUES IN THE ERA OF THE MONOLOGIST: Julie Strand

Ego Eco Iceberg: In the Dreamscape of the Monologist

Bigly I love you. Bigly because
the density of pure ice is about 920 kg/m³.

Bigly I swear, that the density of seawater
is 1025 kg/m³, is bigly you know.

And bigly I hate you, but bigly I care.
Bigly because most of me is

above the waterline. Bigly,
I am a man. Bigly see my shape?

Its underwater portion
is just difficult to judge. I am bigly

in charge, bigly above the surface.
Look at this portion. With this, I stomp the lands.

With this, I make the laws. Look
at that expression

“tip of the iceberg”

It is who I am.
No is who you are,

a problem that is only a
small of a large. And bigly

I am the master, an Iceberg
bigly ranging from a

um, 1 to 75 metres (3.3 to 246.1 ft)
weighing 100,000 to 200,000 metric tons.

Yeah, feel the heft
(110,000 to 220,000 short tons) of

this ruler.
