“A baby’s watching a dog
that’s watching the chickens”

-Amelie, leading a blind beggar


Spam Wednesday, Mar 25 2009 

I can’t really take all of the credit for writing this.  It is a compilation of words and phrases I found in spam e-mails.


She looked fine.
Her heat,
the damaged crocus dress she wore,
Livid face and pendent eyelids,

He stood rigid as if they had found out he was a spy.
He looked over the edge of the balcony,
snatching up the cloak

The cloth a voice of mass warning

Latin again.
“I had to get into the open, away from the bugs.”

He smiled and blew a kiss to her
his lips asserted themselves unconsciously
as if they were loathsomely alive.

They hear snow garden music.
The chords harped slower, playing them like birdlime.
