Nostalgia creeps in

& rattles my hi-hat . . .

Have you ever listened
to the way most
drummers sing? So
regular, so pedestrian,
a freight train held captive
by its tracks. It seems
they cannot forget
that they are drummers
so sit on the rhythm
of the song as if
scared of losing it
if they let go. Welcome
to the Hotel California.

Market prices continue
to rise, not only outdoors
lounging around the pool
on enormous bean bags

but also inside those various
types of yurt where walking
tracks criss-cross the floor.

A line from Holland, Dozier, Holland

My boyfriend & I are
heading to the historic Roxy
which was recently redone
as three connected tree-

houses set in nothing but
huge paddy fields. The chain-
saw ringing in the nearby
rainforest is, on one level,

a kind of recognizable
historical pedigree, on an-
other an incongruous shout
giving the surroundings a

different meaning. Livestock
wander the grounds. Young
people migrate long distances.
It is possible to survive for

about 60 days without food.
This can be a bleak narrative.
Penguins are one of the arche-
typal animals of cold climates.

The tent is pitched in the
middle of a courtyard,
symmetrically placed.
Numerical values are pro-

vided. So, too, an artificially
illuminated rainbow. Toss
chunks of super-cold dry ice
around—wood storks love

them. The pattern of the shadows
is counted using modular tallies
of prime numbers. Measures of rice
appear as unique combinations.

Tablets really are the new PCs

The car industry cannot stop making new cars
Nobody buys them because they are too expensive
I bought an electrical tricycle to
transport eggs with my wife
The monster will destroy this country

The key to good timbre
is the endorphins; so I
go to the gym to get a
rounder sound & better

tone when I flex my
stomach muscles. There
are many beautiful ways
to sing the same song—

plastic clarinets sound good
as well, & they're cheaper. We
are proud to be from Brooklyn!

me a letter I

find nothing
