I’m going through one of my notebooks and saving out the good stuff. Here is a “found” poem, so to speak: a summary of The Big Lebowski, as told (mostly) by Donny’s lines of dialogue, with just a little help from Walter. Enjoy.
The Big Lebowski
(as told by Donny)
[Donny, you’re out of your element.]
He peed on the Dude’s rug–
His name’s Lebwoski? That’s your name, Dude.
What’s a pedarast, Walter?
I am the Walrus.
Who has your undies, Walter?
Phone’s ringing, Dude.
We’ll be near the In-and-Out Burger.
Those are good burgers, Walter.
Are these the Nazis, Walter?
[Donny was a good bowler, and a good man.]
