A line from Chuck Berry

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

The original is of poor quality.
Copying the document is prohibited.
A fog was moving in. The low
contrast reduced perceived speed.
R.I.P.

When the Apollo astronauts made their trips to the Moon, they were treated to a view that no human had ever seen before: a Mexico border wall 9.14 meters high · the Federal Government is ramping up pressure on Labor & the crossbench to pass its increases to childcare subsidies, citing data from Kellyanne Conway that shows "You wanna focus on two here & two there, it’s on you, you’re a fucking miserable person, P.S., just whoever you are" · Justin Bieber certainly had a funny way of showing his fans how much he "loved" them (his words) last week, conducting a test of a newly developed high-thrust engine at North Korea's Tongchang-ri rocket launch station · police are hunting for a gunman who shot the Parliamentary Budget Office — which costed a proposal to abolish stamp duty & replace it with a broad-based land tax — in the head and stomach · Chuck Berry, the rock 'n' roll pioneer who established the form & the themes of the music with his slyly funny, rhythmically propulsive hits, has died.

For sides, I plate small portions

activity. It's a breakfast that

adheres to deep biological

Locofo Chaps

is the imprint of Bill Allegrezza's project of bringing out 100 political chapbooks — downloadable pdfs also available as $5 print on demand — during the first 100 days of the Trump presidency. Lots of good stuff there. Proud to have a couple of chaps included.








[Yes, I do know it's Mar-a-Lago, but I hoped that invoking the spirit of Humphrey Bogart might help get rid of the gangsters in the House.]

The full catalog is available at http://www.moriapoetry.com/locofo.html.

The terminology & linguistic

Based on a look at the CIA's internal dark meme division, Harvard researchers have proposed a theory about the possibility of mysterious celestial phenomena known as fast radio bursts (FRB) being caused by alien space travel or advanced alien technology · the Nintendo Switch has a lot of tricks up its sleeve—one of them that the new head of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Scat PooPitt, says he does not agree CO2 is a primary contributor to global warming · yes, it really has been 20 years since Buffy the Vampire Slayer burst onto our TV screens in 1997. If you remember this moment, you are now officially old.

A Found Poem

(from GNS Science; 3/6/17)

The Franz Josef Glacier
falls from the greywacke

zone at its head, near the
Main Divide, to the schist

zone at its melting snout,
close to the Alpine Fault.

A line from Sean Spicer

I bought a phone last
month. It gets very hot,
just like being in that
bunny suit I occasionally

got around in in my earlier
stint at the White House.
It's overheated three times
now in the past fortnight,

didn't matter what I was
doing with it at the time
or what spin I'd been in-
structed to put on what-

ever story was currently
causing us angst. Now
it's suffering through a
hormonal imbalance & is

currently playing songs
from The Sound of Music. It's
getting so hot. My bunny
suit was so much cooler.

Two 100,000-year-old skulls unearthed in China are up-ending ideas about human evolution. They appear to be hybrids of humans, neanderthals, & a Polish member of the European Parliament who sounded a clarion for misogyny by claiming women should earn less than men because they are weaker, smaller & “less intelligent” · DoNuts T®ump has praised Australian-born author Nick Adams' book, which argues that only immigrants willing to take on an after-school job in a butcher’s shop should be let into the US. Government ethics rules barring product endorsements don't apply to Precedents, so Adams can happily milk the bonanza · the Victorian parliamentary perks scandal has been reignited with revelations two MPs used chauffeured ministerial cars to get to & from a Bruce Springsteen concert at Hanging Rock last month · seven years after abolishing military conscription, Sweden has announced it will reintroduce the draft in order to bolster national security as tensions rise about a smart condom which monitors performance in the bedroom — as well as detecting sexually transmitted infections (STIs) — being developed in the UK.

Precedent DoNuts T®ump unloaded on the news media Friday for using anonymous sources — just hours after members of his own staff insisted on briefing reporters only on condition their names be concealed · Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, was reportedly assassinated by a monster-size sea creature which has since washed ashore in the Philippines · huge security disasters like Cloudbleed are never fun. However, as more information about the newly reported vulnerability becomes available, we can understand how dangerous bugs covered in white hair stand to screw up the internet · Caitlyn Jenner, a lifelong Republican, is not happy with the Precedent over his administration's reversal of Barack Obama's directive on transgender access to public school bathrooms · a giant penguin foot-bone discovered in New Zealand shows that the ancestors of everyone's favorite flightless bird waddled Earth during the age of dinosaurs · researchers report that a new study offers more evidence that DoNuts T®ump can only reach orgasm when he utters the words "it’s a military operation."

Racquets she said, even though there was no tennis going on.

Or maybe it was rackets, & she was talking about the noise up the road, or the way that local builders get their plans through council despite breaching nearly every bylaw in the book.

Could have been Reckitts, left up for me to interpret which among their products I'm in dire need of — grime or pimple remover, condoms, antiseptic lotions, mustard, mouthwash.

Then again, perhaps rickets, even though I'm not young — except in name — & any or all of the products listed above could possibly have helped minimize or even remove that condition.

So, rockets. No, not that, her red glare tells me quite clearly.

Leaves only ruckets . . . But there's no such word in general use, though it is a family name, & a brand of skates, &, if Google's autocomplete is accurate, it might have something to do with tickets to the Rugby World Cup.

Though, wait. Because of this fuss I'm making over what the word in question is, I've just been accused of causing a ruckus. Perhaps that is what was intended all along.
