A line from J. R. R. Tolkien

Paradigmatic examples of
logical arguments include
both the philosophical zombie
& increasing the number

of quality English football
players. Bodily differences
must be confronted. The
extended free-will defense

claims that encounters with
gendered choreography contain,
in solution, an evil nature. Now
how can I face your parents?

electricity poles with a half-moon shape

Spare us the conspicuous
parasol. The realm has shifted
in favor of the hands-free

feature of a hat. One of the
fads this summer will be
biking down backstreets.

There is nothing daintier.
Horse riders have left the
city. So has Edouard Manet.

A line from Steven Spielberg

A battle with a wild
Pokémon interrupts
our ability to watch
a sound being made

at some distance away.
It’s a twist on a proverb,
or possibly the atmo-
spheric concentrations of

greenhouse gases reflected
back, in a kind of albedo,
off parents watching their
offspring fall from trees.

A line from Chuck Berry

The antecedent objects are multi-
vocalic, non-buffered, directly
labeled, characterized by the
bones of domesticated animals.

Copying the document is prohibited.
The original is of poor quality.
A fog was moving in. The low

BALD EAGLE
Have you ever listened
to the way most
drummers sing? So
regular, so pedestrian,
a freight train held captive
by its tracks. It seems
they cannot forget
that they are drummers
so sit on the rhythm
of the song as if
scared of losing it
if they let go. Welcome
to the Hotel California.
