• floorboard creaks when I lurch forwards for the open doorway, it sucks upward with my feet. It will be impossible to replace.

  • hailstorm puppy chow footprints in the muddy snowdrift, beams of headlight wobbling over the crystals, twinkling snow angles flutter and dance, the snow prints are hollow tubes of smoky cool.

  • hailstorm drumming my haircut plastered flat to my scalp, coiled heavy locks and dripping hairpins splashing my shoes, they are ruined and they’re so new, the sky is deep and gray.

    silverware frosted and cool, varnish smells and curling paper lining, a string of dust and things, a squeak of metal and a squeeze of wood.

    broke down filthy tugboat, lollipop prince and smarting ankles, beyond the splashing sphincter lives the dandelion king, his smile yellow and cracked with rot and marked with coffee smudges, and he bobs up and down.

    tired trouble smother smooch, trees sagging springtime bloom, bluebirds fanning the damp grass, droopy feathers, the buzz of motor and the squeal of old truck, footprints in muds shrinking into themselves and slurching.

  • holistic herbs twirling in your coffee cup, a spoon askant and smelling of copper, smelling of dried faucet water-on-metal, the fluff of powder dancing in the swish, and the health benefits of even looking at it.

    crowded room with flags and drizzle, porpoise dandelions in pots and troughs, come the cake and the balloons, and the old men with their piney scent, come the nilla wafers and the bag of doritoes, and the children aflutter and trampling beneath the slanted door shadow.

    spikes strong cantaloupe bard tale. albeit another man, one not unlike you and I, was truly to blame. eating apples and crabapples and Adams apples too. Beware the social dictator that reads on 1s and 0s.

    deserted asteroid blue procedure. stardust slippery footprint coat. white suits and silver gleaming rocket. fins and a sparkling nosecone. A comet hurtling, turning our way. that’s no comet. My harpoon gun’s stuck to my utility belt.

    key lock flower store upholstery. floral columns coffee stained textures, a smell of mold and varnish, a peel and a bubble and a finger hole, are there bugs inside, is there a plate of bugs between paper and wood?

    radius of a head is five fingers thick, eye poke watery pink drip cross your cheek as you huff into the pillow, matte of hair, hairnet shadow o’er the tater tots, pizza day, square pizza with flakes of iced cheese mixed with the melted.

    rival antics. unicorn horn stealing. two men in line, a hatchet in each hand, sunglasses and dark coats, collars turned up. gravel scraping underfoot. a whack, a thump. a spray of unicorn tears.
