#277 Transatlantic Passenger

The horse has lost his bell
& balls. Not even half-assed,

just a tail. Has found a
muscular man whose nose

adopts a fencer’s stance.
Cumberbund captured.

Wrapped. Bound. Might be
a fit. Tight, but enjoyable.

#276 La Belle Captive



                         She paused to let
                    a brass band
                            pass—these days 
                  the beach was full 
             of them. Not from
                      any new-found universal
                            desire for music; rather 
               a re-discovered           need for
               uniforms. Not winning is
                         never easy—especially 
                       when you also haven't
          lost. But the games
                    are never over until
               the games begin. So 
                           redefine the space
          between with passing-
                         out parades & 
          swimwear & get the
               answers ready 
                            for the questions that 
          are sure                to come.

#275 Night in Pisa






                              Close by the un-
                            edifying surface
                          images of under-
                       ground bombing 
                     I come across the
                  Martha Graham 
               Company dancing 
             Stravinsky's Le 
           Sacre du Printemps 
         & stay with that. 
       This is not denial 
      but a necessary                 
                                                           maintenance 
                                                           of balance.

Can there be ) an infinite )    )

The former

#272 The Connivance

The design of modern
operating systems often
uses religious privilege
to conceal the results of
wanton destruction by

an unscrupulous timber
mafia. This rejection
of classical architecture
allows a 'natural', organic
building style to attract

rare maritime species to
locations whose d├ęcor
would otherwise suggest
nothing less than Dickens'
eponymous Bleak House.

#271 Almayer's Folly





    The low frequencies
    of the spectra cause
    horizontal rasta
    distortion but
    not all rock bassists
    use it. There are no
    step
              by
                    step
    instructions & the
    assembly manual is
    made with interfaced
    flannel lining &
    cotton fabric stretched
    over the terrain be-
    tween dilation & erosion.

#270 The Witness




Shortly after
crossing the Earth's
meridians, the
paradigm shifted
to be replaced
by a single central
index letter. Hun-
dreds rioted. Sniper
teams lined the
walls. Pre-
booking for Good
Friday services
became essential.

#269 The Literal Meaning V

She thought it was a fitting moment to remind us that doctors are working on developing a uterine transplant procedure featuring allegoric imagery, & with a surprise pop-up on the side. Some commentators believe it has much in common with the medicine stick of a shaman. Others scoff, say it’s just another horse behind a curtain.

#268 The Return

                          The temperament
                 of birds. Cardboard
                              container of take-
                   out noodles masquerades as
                       a nest of eggs. Light.
                        Elongated? No, not
                               that, the things it
                           touches. Ensuing.

#267 Mesdemoiselles de l’Isle Adam

                         It can be hard 
                to stand out 
                               amongst ones'
                  peers: so the 
                     necklines of 
                                the light blue 
                silk gowns are 
                         low & the rose-
                     colored boots 
                           all have bro-
                      cade tops. & to
              top it off, who
                        can forget a 
                band—or was that
                     brand?—name like
                        Telepathy-gabble
                  & Structured 
                              Exercise? Tell
                    me again. Why 
                       do I need viagra?
