…TO BE AS A FREE CITY…

[response to: On edge]

things made possible by the fingertips of enunciated hands. miniscule tears in paper. untying a small animal. a little kid interested in drawing the pouring rain and putting ugly rocks into a box.

my grandmother once said hey don’t dance around in the living room. if you fall on the television it will explode.

that’s what I like to tell the old tree so old it turned itself into worms. I say I know what’s underneath you, tree, and when the stock market comes back up we’ll sure get away from here. believe me. my loyalty is not untried it’s just that your hair is on fire?

that’s what’s called a curve ball why aren’t you taking it? it’s the most important press conference of your life and you couldn’t even come up with a tie. now you’re saying you’ve been reading up on economics and you think you can get your rigidity back. that’s nice but I’ll believe it when the colors get inverted, cracks make wet sticking noises to each other and raccoons stop coming through the ceiling
