Song Title

fig. 087) est tempus fugit

Fraxinus is a good hard wood at market but its leaves are wild. The ash almost always turns early in the autumn, surging bright and hot into the shorter cooler nights of fall. But the magic in them is gone. Instead, they're drunk on the juice of summer's lily and fern, scattered by the squirrels and the breast heavy log nymphs, the trees are slack and thin with hangover. The house sits behind the wreck of these wobble drunks, peeking through. It's tossed eves are banging in the long winds off the lake. The garage is also poor in purpose and execution, the less I say of it the better.
There's rotting wood, ratty with bird shit and worm stuff that's descending into the busy grass out in front. The doors are gone and all of the windows are broke. The smaller rocks, the good throwing stones are inside with ache of the mildew that's spreading over the high birch paint along the withering walls. "You should come with me," Nancy steps out of the stairwell as I walk in through the back. "But be careful not to break those, the almost dry parts are the most fragile."
I love this song, "Who's the fat sack of almost limp dicks, blue eyed funny little bunny knows. Underneath the diplomat hat on the fat of his head, he's running for the money little bunny. The suit that he's wearing matches the sign that you're carrying, love love me do. The hand that he's holding is the one that's wet and it's golden. It's shaped like a hand that's gonna squish you."
Soft as a robot, beside the door there's a tiny amplifier. It's leaking AM signals out up into the living room and out to space. The workshop is cool and damp, it's like heavy laundry left on basement concrete. There are metal cabinets and tables everywhere. Tall angular stools lean into the heavy pink light. Most of the tools have been broken. Many of their little motors got crusty and brown from grinding shellac into dust and lead into slick hot lumps, so they stopped. Now they sit in tangles beside the remainders of a greasy and flightless bird that's been taxidermied by a drunk hand.
"It wasn't supposed to start like this," that's right, a simple gag for the laughs. "A place to float a yawn. A quiet night in May."
"Uuhh... Curators? Artists? I can't think about it."
"Nope, just the fundraising team that got hold of it. There wasn't a Jacket, white or otherwise among them, O' the irony that sings least is not less."
"Let me guess, they were helping. The UmperKunst love to help."
"Yeah, that'll leave you rattled with the beer shits, won't it?"

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…
