Let's Sing-song for Paper Plate Jesus

fig 1.) Untitled (song for paper plate Jesus)

It's as tuneful as it is plain. Hey man, hey that paper plate, the one with Jesus name taped to it. Who did that, who did that Paper Plate Jesus on the wall...
This essay with all of its words and sense seems bungled in the jam of its tripped up sentences. It sits there dogeared at the tables edge. Reposant is not very easy man. It's not just any variety of old twinkle twinkle, it reads from the small pages at the back. Reposant, is some very special light indeed. It's an old sofa, it's a stained afghan, and a leaky battery all sitting in the corner of an otherwise white room. It's as though something truly wonderful has established this neat climate; trim and not so boisterous but neat as climates go. It's the final construction of this thing that's slipped the yoke of the authors authorial authority.
When asked about his time in Tunis Michel Foucault is often quoted as, sensible and lean like a simple wage earner finding his pantry empty for the first time. This sounds like Shane, He licks the spittle from the edge of his otherwise dry lips. This sounds like the author of a dozen other westerns has tried a little too hard to be right there. It's made me a little sad and disillusioned to read this. I'm just going to sit here and I'll have a glass of Bordeaux. (Je vais rester ici et je vais avoir un verre de Bordeaux, He said as one to the boy.)
But you're wrong Michel. We do need you. Don't sit alone, stewing. Won't you come home with me? We can reward you for being the center of our glory.
The twilight, indeed the very mystery of the veil is like an old sofa, Michel tells the young boy. It will always have a soft finish and good legs to boot. It's meant for sitting here to appreciate it.
No Michel it's meant for us to watch from a distance, but not to far. It's meant for us to watch as you appreciate it. Same as the legs of the spider known as, simple when it must wither into the seed of itself. This is Tunis no more. This is instead all of us. When your eye's rest then we shall watch over you still.
Go, Michel whispers over his wide glass. Be young and pray you, this room will remain. It's taut and tight for all the weary children to play within despite my absence, despite any of your interest. These after all are walls and walls will stand on their own.
Walls might stand Michel, The boy nods. But names will never stick.

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…

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…
