Bohemian Rhapsody

by Nora Jay

“Franz Kafka drawings reveal ‘sunny’ side to bleak Bohemian novelist”
The Guardian

Here’s Joseph K., in pose serenely fetal,
Chillaxing with a cheerful giant beetle;
The Well-Fed Artist’s feasting, with no hassle,
On fries and popcorn in the Bouncy Castle.
Yes, “Kafkaesque”’s a synonym for “sunny”!
(“Bohemian”’s already strangely funny.)
