Corflute City


She checked the batteries on her
taperecorder. Occasional birds

flew by, replicating the passing
of the seasons, but more mono-

chrome than the originals. Most
of the shops on the esplanade

had closed early. Only the vas-
cular surgeon was still awake.


DNA / has been / tempting for scientists


We had initially installed
CSQA on a sub domain
for testing purposes. I’d
never had any issue with
confronting an encounter
or running a game. Up un-
til now. This idea of using
fertility to provide ping for

any desperately needed edit
is to condone that trauma-
tizing conceived by show-biz
&/or sporting celebs. Of whom
there are always large numb-
ers up north this time of year.

Aeschylus died


Viking women, decked out
in their ceremonial
finery — apron dresses
adorned with bead strings or
chain — would stroll the

village in pairs & groups,
singing & dancing, &
slyly hiding their eyes
behind two-tone ace-
tate aviator sunglasses.


it can be fabulous


                       It’s a strategy as old as

              licorice or the schoolyard.


              Weaving a man’s mojo in

                       pvc gives ladyboys the


                       biggest boost in replacing

              their testosterone with tiaras.


reports underline a suspicion


I have noted the environ-
mental info contained in
the metadata of the healthy
menu options organization,
among the most extensively
studied & reported on of
any regulated industry. It
confirms that burials per-
formed by military person-
nel may be safe & efficient
but are very rarely dignified.


centralizing the conversation


Just revealed case studies of
transversal coordination in a
meerkat-machine collaborative
clandestine airlift operation

expose just how severe the loss
of higher education institutions
in Mexico actually was, & how

that placed indigenous groups
into vulnerable circumstances.


from the Chinese


Now that the meerkat
has discovered man buns
& hillbilly music, the
Imperial Palace has

directed all local magi-
strates to remove it
from the protected
species lists & gazette

an open season on the
animal, covering at least
the first two months
of the coming summer.


At / Home with / the Arrowroot Tapestry


Tapioca roots inhabit the pit-

falls of disconnect. Solace is at

a premium — only the poor can

afford to let it go. Now scholarly

essays inspect our grammar &

report back to the groundwater

bureau who decide whether we

sink or swim or are allowed to


enter the gig economy as a pub-

lic scribe. The military band is

marching back down the street, so

the funeral has run its race; but un-

til I hold the winding-cloth in my

hands I won’t be entirely certain.
