Almost anyone with hiccups will sound cute. Just like almost anyone with a cold — when they speak, that is. I like the way people’s voices sound when they just wake up. Sort of scratchy yet soothing. Maybe people sound better or come across as more winsome when their defenses are down.
I like drowsing as a word: Although I did not eat turkey, I spent today drowsing on the couch because it was cold and raining out and everything was shuttered. Speaking of which, I think drudgerous would be a useful word to add to the English language: (Scooping my cat’s litter can be drudgerous.) **Continue reading “Etc. etc.”
Holding my breath until the weekend. Some weeks feel like ascending Everest—with its peak being my two days off, of course. Everest even contains the word “rest,” as well as “ever,” which to me means perpetual leisure and not death. Imagine having leisure forever. This would not be like something enjoyed by a vampire, forContinue reading “Ever-rest”

He himself wore a mohawk. He had just demolished a slice of pizza: The flattened box sat lifeless onContinue reading “Shark Shirt”
Lagrime San Pietro for the sublime voices. Di Lasso madrigals. Better with snowfall in barren winter but still above-average lovely. ** Can cannibalism save the planet? Would you eat a Republican to help curtail climate change? ** It’s a perfect day and age to talk to yourself. Bluetooth as a ruse — a bum componentContinue reading “This and that”
Having a cat is like having a plant. You have to give it food, water and some love and make sure it has access to a window. Handle delicately. ** Bukowski as the gateway poet. ** New Ginsberg book. Post-mortem. $29.95!! The trick is they use courier or some other slab serif to evoke strike-onContinue reading “Cats, etc.”
