140 degrees of doing it. Characters. I drip a hard cider with reach dead cartoon I’ve clubbed: punctuation as means of protestant restraint.


The party went off with a hitch: Bran flaked, forgetting the hardtack & duck gravy. Strobes milked seizure. Flashed bits of fragged fiction.


Indecent exposure, northern proposal. My wires are crossed as a pair of robot stars. Socks. Show me your laundry & I’ll show you my machine.


Calendar cuts you an image deep. It must be trash day, your year to walk the cul-de-sac doggerel. Quarter for rat-boys in ox-tongue park.

Forgive us this shortness of breadth, but my space is piggybank sacred. At our unattended funerals, lets hope AutoTuned elegies will repeatedly read themselves.


Skeleton walks into a bar, orders his G and T with a side of mop. Stop goes my sad sack waxing as a friend crying SOS over SMS. Wasn’t I banned from the band too?


Lets throw us out a safe word. Might I suggest defenestration as a way to render the potted plants? If she tosses in the night, I’ll collect your shocked shell.


Recapitulate is another word I tend to misuse. Recapitulate, to tie one on after the guillotine. And one means head. And capitulate is a how to guide for keeps.
