Martially artful

Outwhistle the birds?

Earrings to unnerve.

Post-pill shudder.

Hard to believe we ran all that way...

I saw a bluebird today.
Does that make me gay?
It may.

That graffiti cheers me

I'll breath this wood-smoked air and stare.

Let's be cleansed by antique soap ads.

He only sees the worst in peepholes.

Memory isn't everything

His breathing alone tells a story

"One day we will all die, and then we'll be the same as that tree--no me, no you. Be that as it may, we need heat."

Sunday stroll report

That blend of contentment and dread-

This meaning...

How long can this last?

I encourage dark sarcasm in the classroom.

Take this the wrong way

And on the seventh day,
people created God.

I won't get drawn into arguments over falafel quality.

Elision Fields

Don't raise your lettering at me!

(Nothing alt about this country.)

The one truly American art form:

Declaring things to be the one truly American art form.

Line for line

"History wasn't made, thank God."

These skyscrapers give me a boner.

She contains multitudes. Believe me.

Great gift idea = bad regular idea

Like you rent the place

Folding pizza boxes,
stacking them to make a
Great Wall.

Apparently, they've gone out of business.

Were they flashing their lights at us?

Who thinks about who more?

Her imperfections are perfect.

Studying what doesn't matter.

My half-assed belief in fate holds that fate itself is half-assed.

(A profound wait.)

And then what?

A table of wonder-junk for sale.

You pick things up along the way.

If language is a prison, it's one of those minimum-security, country-club deals.

Meanwhile, back at the cafe...

The Dubious Honors

Have a seat.

A scene from "Basquiat" was shot on this bench.

I shouted, "Dana!"
But it wasn't her.

How about some applause for childhood,
which does and doesn't last forever.

We always seem to end up here.

Works for now

The strict borders of cultural currency in effect:
Hot-shot high school athletes wearing letter jackets in Midtown Manhattan.

Photo project:
Mall fountains across America

The year of magical drinking

Almost almost spring

Schoolgirl consciousness

Remember when I was waiting for you at that park?

The city is still smoking those giant orange-and-white striped cigars.

On TV: A show of force

The cat across the way and I have an understanding.

A flash mob of one

I will note her cliffs.

Saturday, March 04, 2006

But for a good reason

Those make me excited and nervous.

Did I think this or just say it?

(happy anniversary)

Doesn't count

I like everything by The Vapors except "Turning Japanese."

Where are our eloquent poets of gain?
