Earthen Passageway

the cave was a musty cave
littered with the skeletons
of NPR reporters
Lakshmi Singh was clutching a goblet
and Kai Ryssdal had an extra leg
the only light source was the tuning panel
of a Bang Olufsen receiver
plugged in next to the blender

Vast Compounding

you talked up the plutocracy
and bought the pricey sliders
expensive tiny sandwiches
are best when they're insiders

Street Assessment (Polity)

I was named after the street I grew up on
I was named after the street I grew up on
My name is Thirty-First
I was taught how to gauge the tension
I was warned about what not to mention
It's a blessing, not a curse
Understanding markets is a patterned lonely process
I've seen the fallout in the office
When the trending scale is wrong
So please pardon my excess
When I ask that you should address
All the things you say are wrong

Impunity Representative Volume 4.214

the elder abuse case was dropped
because the noodling of the needy is sanctioned
by three agencies
(two of them start with the letter "R")
so don't tell me about future returns
unless you're willing to put it in writing
because the video is just sick

Grid Dynamism Section 3.217

I want to electrocute myself
but then again, I don't
I want to make something of myself
but I know I won't
I want to retire and sleep all day
but I know if I did
I'd electrocute myself
If I ever retire
I will die in a fire
an electrical fire
won't that be something?

Enrolled Agent Build 04.272

I will celebrate the death of the business
and your eventual return to the Los Angeles club scene
with your Echo Park pajamas
and your Cyndi Lauper death mask
good times are just around the corner

Joist Feathering

radiation from group 7
changed the mood at Manker Flats
heat passed from cold to hot that night
allowing the steel shapes of animals
a few unsanctioned moments
to feel alive in the harsh halogen glow

Transaction Build 04.271

don't say flagrant
because if dumbsourcing is your bag
you've got it in the bag
I can't help that you got fired
and I didn't get you fired
but I might have tried
if I had known they would listen
Transaction Build 04.271 was a triumph
we think about your face
with an "X" through it
