Morning, dark as a wad of copper tasting spit

fig.1) great genie of comic timing

Party party party has an assembled goal at the end of every line item Reach out there's a glass eye in the fountain O' poach'd soup Marble in the hall Door in Door out - Out into a forever kind of space on SwingRoundTunes by the This Old Angel
"We'll lose our sad cowboys first, they're in the front row. Then that other dirtbag, the self righteous pile of puke will do in the rest of us. After that it's going to be a long shared nightmare of hand wringing and broken sweats," Mr Mittens sets his bag of groceries beside the hot plate. Through a spangled haze of cracker dust and oily tuna stains there are sounds of the briefest of moans slipping through the deep blue walls. His humble eyes graze the table's top. There's a glass of water, a peach, a rose bright and blooming like an open heart that's on display.
"Here we are than," Says Mr Mittens. He walks around his hard chair and picks up a shallow dish. The water inside feels thin, it feels wet and smooth on Mittens thumb.
The kitty watches him. There's a ring around its small box. "That's supposed to be a reminder for the very forgetful cat, Isn't that right Mr Cats? You were only being misguided, that's all. You had your chance and then you lost it. But if you think about it, you'll find your way out again."
Surprise surprise it's Mr Mittens hoard. In the back corner behind the coat hook and his winter scarf. There's an old bag of lime on the floor of the pantry. There's a sack full of folded brown shoppers on the shelf. There's soup and corn and a box of long hard pasta. Three shelves hang above a broken box filled with soft plastic plates and cups stamped in gold. The edge of the curtain is oily. There's a black shade on the mat that's on the floor. It's the same as the shade that's stretching out past the door.
Mr Mittens un-bags his canned goods, his frozen peas and his soft quiet bread. The calendar is marked up all of the boxes are full. It's tacked up above the sink along with a curled photograph, two black boxers hugging, forgiving, "Or maybe they're just going for tea."
Mr Mittens sets a sturdy tin of Royal Shine Ready-Made on the edge of the sink. He sings, "Mine all mine." Only the cat can ever hear, "The jerks in the back never listen. It's all horses and sums."

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…

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…
