                lend me your linguistic ninja

but whomever
                                                             > yeah, we need
had it first
                                                             > to keep some

                unrivet the steel morning supports

never used it,
                                                             > extra strings
just let the wood age

                yo, check out this ridiculous blow tube

                                                             > around

*kaleidoscope for Styrofoam*
                —for Seth Borenstein, AP Science Writer
“That's important
because

the Arctic acts

the Arct acts
the Arc acts
the Ar acts
the A acts
the    acts

as a refrigerator
for the globe.”


*NEMESIS NEEDS*

               “Az                     ri                              el,
               go tell

               Gar                     ga                             mel

               Smurf                got                           hurt.
               We need

               a                          new                         spell—

We need him well again.”


               “As                     long                         as
               it’s for

               good                  not                            for
               evil,”

               Gar                     ga                              mel
               lent an

               out                     stretched                hand—

“I understand, Peter Pan.”
