The apologist and the appraiser have decided to stay put

dashed wet and grim

Oh now, Reagan of steel glitter in pants with which to shake them on down. Oh now, I shit you not for these are the things. Yes in any order you should choose these are the things to please please me, Oh Yeah. - Unmarked letter signed, A to A

They'll say to me that it's safe to say so much for ubiquity, for disenfranchisement, and the terrorism of privilege. They'll say to me, With all of the effects from these profoundly toxic effects, is the project of our shared humanity effectively being dismantled. Are these the idle thoughts and sad tidings of despots and the tyrant kings inside of their comfortable towers of raised muck. As I've said before, They're not so far gone as to be gone for the good of all. This is plain to be seen in a world of bent backs and gross hyperbole.
I'll sit in any unused doorway. I'll be beside myself while every door is locked. I'll dream of the halls and listen as the curtains, the drinking, and the Parcheesi are played. I'll be under our biggest and brightest stars, right below the other ones but still above the bridge of wonderful design. The spanse of which is between two streets and both are being paved with all of the right colors.
I'll sit here and look up at night. I can do that for now. I can wait to be rescued from this storm as I write my novel in the street. I'll be patient here on the corner. My sweater's in a bunch under my sweaty arm and this old wreck of pearls hangs chaste. Design is a better hammer than teaching the dishes to stare, This is how my novel begins. I've named it, To Charles In Earnest Luv Buck. These are not words of encouragement but for rage, read them however you will because this is not a constructive time. It is personal time and it doesn't make use of the considerable resources at the Umper-Kunsts disposal. It squanders these with a bitter sauce of fear and righteousness. This is no invitation to be more or to communicate clearly. This is an invitation to lose oneself down the rabbit hole of the mean man's penis. This is a plea to ignore our state and to say, Fuck you Monday, it's not my fault. I only ever wished that things could be as gentle and soft as this brick.
We can listen to the sound of one another. We can sit here and talk as though we want to hear the others words. We can be close to one another and share everything that our wounds have made of us. As always we will find that our strength and our dignity is what we find residing inside of one another, so please listen for those with no voice and please speak until all of us can be heard. Because we can build a better culture by imagining an all inclusive space of preservation and learning. A culture with a voice that shares rather then shouts and one that doesn't sneak out the back door when the liquor dries up. Yes we can stop offering each other fuzzy words and platitudes for the thieves that can already afford to buy their own laundry and things. - Unmarked letter signed, A to A 

A marginalized and radical percentage of a fraction refuse to fix things by using the right way to fix them, these are supposed to be the bad seeds from which badness grows. Blue lives are so sad, they're are really stressed out and they wanna cry real bad too. A highly militarized and very blue police force is necessary because THEY aren't playing by the rules. They aren't fixing things the right way. When we're suddenly faced with the need to provide leadership and a strong voice of encouragement for both the stewardship of culture and the reflection and analysis of the overall health and well being of our shared community what we receive instead are impoverished nods that despite all facts indicating otherwise our world is just fine and as the guardians of mixed signals and crossed wires it’s our part to serve the narrative that’s paid for with the money of trees rather than the one bathed in the chaos and blight that alone we return to each night. While the work of this artist is profound and timely it’s the words that bolster his labor that are so symptomatic of the decay and ruin at the heart of all of institution.

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…
