Any epiphany where sorry is a hard man.

fig 12.) Without any judgement, it's just shit in the shape of a cock.

"At first there's the bird house. Then there's a bee's hive and a short mountain. After that are two gas stations and an exam with many questions about, Poo."
"Poo?"
"Poo."
The chambers and the swivel chairs above the street are all empty, He-Man's gone home for the night. The Masters-at-Arms are waiting with the old clowns and the other wig police down the way. The pills are bright, there's a few on the table. They're in a lumpy bag. The word, vote has been printed on the side of it in blue with four bright stars.
"Lumpy bag of polished toads is more like it," The Masters-at-Arms grumbles from his stool.
"That's what's passing for goodly wig to wig talk these days," I mutter along silently while breathing in and breathing out. "The city has no qualms watching us as we go about our tiny spider-business. Cast a wide enough net and they might even find one of them unicorns with an eyepatch or a deviant attorney, Serena Serena-Ha. Who knows what danger really lurks below the gunshots. What actually measures the distance between our paychecks and our pornography. As Cities go, this city likes to watch. It likes to patrol the streets at night with its bald toothed Mayor in hand. Quickly quickly's a must. That was my mistake."
"The shovel on the bar is a tool for between drinks," The suit that I'm wearing tonight is brown with frayed elbows and a bad split. There's a quiet knock and then another quick one. "Wait here."
The door opens and a head creeps in. "Let's keep the balance in our shed shall we," The old slump-tinker reaches round for his broom on the wall. "I do like it in the shed," He says before leaving again.
"The last gas station on the left is where you'll turn than."
"Turn left," I ask?
"No, turn at the gas station," The Masters-at Arms comes back from the door. "But you have to remember that the shovel on the bar is a tool. It can either help you or hurt you but it can't do both."
The hole I've been digging is getting noticeably deeper. It seemed to be only casual and ankle deep for the longest time. Now I'm in it up to my waist. I can make out gum under many of the nearby barstools. My hands are bloody from the work.
"It's not about grandfathers at all, not even about genetics," He sits and puts his hammer on the bar beside the shovel. Let's-Call-Him-Carl, That's Carl, like the Beach Boy Carl. He pours himself a long wet line of brown bourbon. "I've never known why. You start talking about grandfathers like they're the tax code things seem to get more important. The sound bigger and more full. But then that's not really my job. No matter how late it gets, it's never late enough to be my job. That never changes. It never gets old."

Got a dog in my earring (an instance of 3)

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…
