#229 Pom 'po pom 'po pon po pon pon



La vache quit rit
& les lapins
qui jouent des
tambours
have
little in common
except that Magritte
called this his
vache period &
painted lots of
rabbits—& other
animals—during it.

But, there goes the
neighborhood now
that musicians
have moved in next
door, & everybody
knows, as Leonard
Cohen reminds us,
that musicians fuck
like . . . well, fuck like
rabbits. So, pom' po,
paradiddle. Pom 'po,
paradise lost. Pon
po pon pon paradox.

#228 Mental Complacency




My grandfather was
a technician for Ma
Bell. He said, "We are

complacent in our
color attributions. The
only way to receive a

signal is to eliminate the
noise. There are no co-
incidences, merely portals."
