  1. She rummaged through the drawer, tossing aside spoons and spatulas until she found the can opener. Pulling it out, she slammed the drawer out of abject frustration. Why can’t things ever end up where they were supposed to go? The can of soup on the counter looked less and less appealing as she banged around the kitchen, angry and claustrophobic.

  2. It was my last day. The boss had called me into his office first thing in the morning. “you just aren’t the conventional staff we wanted” he had said. “I am so sorry” he had added. Well have fun conventionally cleaning toilet paper off the office walls.

  5. just as smiles do not

    pebbles off a cliff, there
    one moment and

    package the manifestation of a
    inside a metal cylinder,

    I firmly reject the
    physics of
    canned laughter

  6. one word takes away the time astray
    to say the tame to trade the same
    to canned unwrapped to wish unwrapped
    to think to thought two too to wit
    i miss the kisses the trist, but
    nothing better than the twist
    love on the times
    trick trips to the coffee
    the tame
