Dichotomy / as an / example of largesse

a gadget on the market is a
crucial resource for understanding
but doesn't exist as a legal entity

a sheet of bubble wrap is
hard-wired for optimism
which is why it goes pop

the feel-good buzz that comes
from an impulse buy is sharply
drawn in feminist literature

the world as we know it risks
exposure to liability for negligent
hiring whose fulcrum is marriage

the church can be held liable
for technology getting in the
way of face-to-face interactions

stopgap shutdown

Translation memories are

the great game

Thursday, January 18, 2018

You do not need to put it in a plastic bag

We have lined our playaway
tops to make them heat up

quickly, enough to melt & pop
a balloon. Men might find it

baffling, but the kinetic energy
helps us pipe melted white

chocolate so it can be x-rayed by
officials when passing through

a security checkpoint, or, later,
be mistaken for food by wildlife.

Prelude to a ficcione

The name of Francis Roche does not appear in the list of musicians who took part in the Miles Davis / Gil Evans album Sketches of Spain. He was meant to have been there, was meant to have played the bass clarinet lines that lie like an echo under the melancholy of Miles at the beginning of the adagio of Joaquín Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez.

Circus economies.

In this iteration, DoNuts T®ump currently has the top billing under the Big Top, but nobody is sure what rôle he is playing, &, anyway, nobody can afford to go. So again we make do by taking what is around us & reassembling it to breathe new life into it, in the process turning the main man into a stick figure prone to stumbling when the light is shone upon him.
