Common / knowledge it / wouldn’t last long

The books were in the
drawer, separated by
a low fence. A staircase
was in the same place.
“Covering all bases,” she
thought. A phone rang
somewhere. It had this
large steel ring, like a

third-rate lawyer who
didn’t miss much. The
rooms were clearly
marked, two adjacent
rectangles, mistakenly
identified as a hair drier.
Her phone seems to have
switched the lawyer off.

a subtle karate pose

The back pages react,
squawk humiliation,
two types of nothing.

A rash of malicious ads
arrive out of the blue—
intense panic attacks

spreading crypto ransom-
ware. In response the De-
partment of Dermatology

has released a virginia
creeper that sits on a low
orange divan beside either

The Bosphorus or the Straits
of Magellan — the trans-
lation is unclear — to help

people understand the subtle
differences between a
lightning strike & a strikeout

in the final innings with the
Boston Red Sox up at bat.

A line from Bruce Sterling

A London based electronic
music producer uses
Ukrainian water pipes &
huge funnel clouds to

create movie special
effects. She calls this a
non-populist activity but
the resultant outputs are

works of scientific art.
There are images of
wreckage & personal
belongings, the inner

workings of cells. Debris
in the air, but an FX
hurricane manages to keep
the place looking spotless.

angular potshots

I am riding the train into London.

It has now been turned into a floating museum.

It saves me money over the year on my off-peak trips.

Our accommodation has an established riding school on site.

It has been lovingly restored from its days as a bunk house for children.

After a hard day on the slopes, just settle down & pull up the drawbridge.
