Buster, Finch, Robison, CHOnPS, drawing from sketchbook

that's him...

No not random at all, Right away Finch let’s me know what he’s thinking about. He starts with the airborn scrubbers, Way up high in all of that punchy space above the clouds there are fat loopy chains of carbon. They’s got nothing to do all day long but gang up with whatever neurotic bits of hydrogen are trying to make time with whatever oxygen is floating around. No platitudes can keep the nitrogen from jumping the fence and making a mad beat for the jinky the sulfur. So they all set a date as timid Tuesday. That’s when the great catalyst called drama, the (equation+lightning=pop) happens. That’s when all of this otherwise inert stuff gets to meet Senior Phospherus and it all spins up into a whimsical new machine.
It's construction shouldn't be this exciting but it is, it is-it is. Because soon after it starts tumbling down like a rain cloud. It’s just like very tiny laundry being kicked into metaphorical hot air by a fleet of metaphorically sprinting gazelle. Millions of microscopic machines start speaking to one another in the code of bees, they dance. This whole muddy haze of a party matter wafts down like an upended sack of severed thumbs and pinky toes. Buster likens it all to them jostling and elbowing their neighbors to generate more and more cute joules as they bang madly about. I generally agree with Buster on this matter.
Then I turn around and ask the old man about the scrubbers too and he tells me, It’s all good. Don’t you worry about it. Listen to Finch and Dr Person can tell you all about the rest later on.
My awake time here keeps getting better as getting gets longer and goner from being really gone, old man. You’re being rude and these fellows are just weird.
Than stay on task or I’ll tell your Momma about you, He guffaws. Chair slaps his fat dance of knee and yells for more coffee.
Finch and Buster look around. Finch blinks. Buster asks me If I need anything and Chair snarls at him. It doesn’t take much for Finch to catch on. He hustles into the side room where they keep the galley. When he comes back Finch puts a tall glass jug on the table between us.
Your head hurt boss, Buster asks Laslow. You know that left eye is looking really really rad. I can see about finding some drops or something for that.
She’s dead, He’s dead, They’re all dead old man, I look up at his great red eye. You won’t get me to roll like this. Tell me what you want otherwise let me out of here.
I only want what everyone wants Gum. I want to get on without fuss. The problem is, you and these two, you’re all fussy. The old man snatches up the bottle and squeezes back a bear of a dumble slug. You can’t find proper whiskey, he says once he comes up for air. Nothing sits still long enough to age proper. But the local kids make some respectable fruit hooch. It’s just not the same, He offers me the jug.
I take a spit pull and Laslow laughs at me jerking and sputtering in my chair.
There was a time when we’d be sitting around like this, Your Ma, John, and me. We’d be giving each other really good Canadian names like, John or Priscilla. Just passing the bottle and talking about chemistry and old mirrors. It was good times them. I loved your Ma, she was up and down a goodly human. She was alright to John too. That man was miserable...

H' after everything is a mailbox stamp knows. Don't, it's all bad. Like a captain bad.

What say the fallen in the Vestibule, late to dinner  Warm as a garden chair Yes to that, to tea and all  in the green as pale as peaches will get 

Turd Grinder IV: Keep me in line for a little while longer, just until you have to go again. The dark wave and the first jolt from my morning coffee are elements that have yet to sheep. Looking through a ton of old glass is hard. Sitting down and sifting through the odd bits of sparkle and dust left inside this hidey-hole at the bottom of this calendar. There's almost always more bitter mixed in there then there is the sweet.  Fontso: I'm so happy-happy to see that this work is being edited down. All of it's been sitting on the back of my desk forever. Where plastic gets soft in the sun and the desks window looks out south all day long it's always so hot. Turd Grinder IV: There's safety in warmth, freedom from reprisal among the pillows, in the soft down. The clock inside is as deep as a clouds kiss.  Fontso: Onion thugs, yello…

In fashion, passive is to envy the figure smote.

Juniper, cedar and all that's old tends to settle on the bus in the corner by this door. It's not quick, joints are popping like failure. Left alone in the kitchen, looking for matches until it can light the stove. "There once was a night here," I've said as much before.
Corn conjured syrup from the corn that I brought from the back of the store. The simple pleasure of falling into that warm slip isn't like drying off or tempting the man at all. It's a lottery with pages of never knowing it all the first time that I was there.
A three way intersection where the street is wet. There's shrink-wrap that's been spooled across each of the pedestrian walkways. It's secured with bulky knots to the street lamp, the sign post and the scooter at each of the corners. There's a garage door or something else done up in yellow with blue steel doors. In the street there's garbage and soon enough an umbrella will join your car keys.
There's alr…
