Schema, no mas grande marioneta

Despite the mess the paintings are beautiful and they're very old. They're well hung and make good use of the sturdy light from the hallway. From here in the doorway I can take them all in at once but I want to linger on each of them. I want to dote and be amazed so I move closer. It takes some time to examine even just the smaller pieces and I still feel that I'm missing something among them. An asymptomatic generational pattern of complex symmetry can appear if the tools being employed are either distinct or large enough. In this group I should be seeing regionalism and the state. The Son's of Noah with their puritanical racism and all of their hogs killing a snake. I should be seeing all of this but I'm not.
You said we'd know. We'd know darling and we'd know well. You said we'd know now. That's how you put it John, We're standing in line behind a charging wave of incense and self flagellation that's behind a herd of dots and homemade tight pants that's even further behind a tightrope walker and the tea cup guy. So we decided to get wasted and take turns hanging our wet clothes over the back of the sofa-couch. Then we'd talk about the Monstre' the Auxiliary and that guy from the hopper with the clicker-buttons. It's all a gas until the physics of it kicks in. After some sharing we realize that we're in a toxic maze of concrete and steel designed to look like this simple box like thing. Cultural advancement, at least as a provision of personal gain is built right into it. It's part of the box's function. It amplifies the false positives that keep us on task and moving around inside here. The Monstre's like this friction and the friction's joule like heat and disturbing imbalance.
They pour the poor Fellows into these cubes that only reflect the nature of them what casts 'em out, Laslow adds.
So it is, Priscilla says handily. They'll need to remove us far enough away to watch the creation of their broken institutional apparatus. It's not for us, so we need to get out of here alive. We can't lay around here talking about the bad stuff anymore.
I know I know, I interject. My wet shirt is steaming at the end nearest the radiator. The large open windows in the project's galley rattle when another gust of wind blows through the old building. Our work table is covered in broken blades cold pry bars and a variety of assorted hasps handles triggers and buttons all painted red. Pree has her feet slung up on it's edge while she leans back and cradles a cup of hot chikory coffee.
Bud+LU are a danger to themselves and every other damn cat that's near enough a sack and some water, Laslow's looking for his roll ups in the back behind the old stack of doors. This isn't the way out kids, he shouts across the room. It's got to be made up while we get on with it. You're both looking for the dot-dot-dot in the ALL CAPS. I can see it and I hate to dash your hopes but we're sinking here and their ain't no time to be waiting on no thumb grasses or cherry flavored button holes or the like.

Who's Zoo?

Let's turn in early, in the corner where our bed is made, there are Pickles and there is pie and maybe soon there'll be some more, Write it down and say it loud, O fishing fable eating names, breathing then and breathing more, Let's trumpet trumpet, Let's blow on it, Then bury me under the door, Then bury me a house for my money and sing me a song when it's gone, Then sing it once again, This time sing it for Mary and then sing it again for the world, Our bed's in the water and barely turning, Burning like flames in the basement, Burning like eggs full of ape shit- This Long Old Song We all call out to Sister Susan, to Henry and the troll of trolls, Abe "the sparkle king." We call out to them lounging on their rock, beside the spring, "This is not yet a question of radical memberships or normalized narratives. These are not like your flowers at all. We have to renegotiate the roles of these entities much more better then they have been. They won…

Grown Awesome in the Deep End

After the fire, the stinging ember of its broken flame, the old house sits and it creaks a lot like a little bit of joy. It's the day after the water has melted apart, when there are sandcastles everywhere but not near enough to the sea. It's the day when I remember the night that everything nearly opened up. The night that I sat up in bed, both of my eyes were filled to their depth with an impossible panic. I couldn't feel the sheets anymore and I couldn't think of Elizabeth's name either. Instead I heard the deep and heavy trucks. The crackle of bull horns that slam into the indecent walls of brick and lumber like they're whiskey finding itself a good wife. I look off into space. Between us, I know my hand is sitting there. I look at the glowing door and I scream like I'm a hot little girl that's burning up from too much heat.
"It's all, touch me. It's touch me if you can because I'm being silent now," she says to me. I can see …

Your Fantastic Sex, it is Genderliscous!!!

Oh Alice, sweet Alice, down the well and in the low field across from the helper-bees. We'll face our frontier with a buzz. We'll cast our piddling stones in the wind and wait. Dream, Dream, Dream, "Cordial and regrettable things, stand solid, unflappable and gummed inside this wonky tide of glue." She's ankle deep in tired feet herself. Climbing from her hole, she's laid her potty mouth in the river by the road.

"Please, the victims aren't even gone yet, Gert! They hover around our ears. Sometimes they'll leave to go away but for now, they've stopped to listen to us groan. They're watching us when we slide under the nest of clouds and the silver weight that they bear. They're quiet below the simple round moon and they're quiet for us now too."

"Those are craven and nasty things. They're easily locked inside of my box or chucked under the bed. What, why me worry at all, is all that I have to say that."
