" 'The Great Book I'm going to turn into a full-length funny cartoon version in the style of De Chirico will be--' He pondered. 'Um, The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius.' " --Th* Thr** Stigmata of Palm*r 3ldritch (1964)

Hop*landish. Kobaian.

"Ben, most people would turn you away
I don't listen to a word they say
They don't see you as I do
I wish they would try to
I'm sure they'd think again
If they had a friend like Ben

"The only token of nobility will henceforth be a knowledge of letters."

   "Non-Comforting Dogma

maroon flourish
among cattails
glow ruinous
unsparing of wisps
running among
this lost long morning"

"It seems both public and press have forgotten the words of Donald Rumsfeld not long after the U.S. “triumphed” in Afghanistan, the words being among the most shameful in American history and certainly ranking with anything a dread figure like Reinhard Heydrich uttered. On what to do with the thousands of prisoners taken in the invasion, Rumsfeld publicly stated they should be killed or walled away forever."

"The gun dealer sold only Lee-Enfields, a turn-of-the-century single-action, British rifle of no use to militants but in popular demand by local farmers, who, lacking telephones, fired rifles in the air as a form of communication." --Rob*rt Kaplan, Th* 3nds of th* 3arth (1996)

"The Punta Rock phenomenon has hit us like a tsunami that came, caused a stir up and went away."

No plans, no thought of action.
Halcyon days and all things still to do.

    "99 Tsars"

curious my abscond
to your din and admonition
following only
an arid roil
scholar of gild spurns
lair or amalgam

i ask no sound which finds
tautly individual say
though a faction soon
wry with gall from
thought pariah will
know this as valid

can an almost full form
opinion upon by word trod
up if tantamount
than usurp fill
out of droll cunning
about my ditto mind

"It could become the first country in the world to succumb to rising sea levels."

   "Jaguar Bismuth"

Harfang waft thus a smart rock
  unlocks muzzy squawk
  as a tart balloon.

Confab agog spools billion
  hoar pharaoh lid click
  gigs and nary brick.

Rorqual infirmary cold
  balks Jurassic palm
  with a bulwark cloud.

Hiring kaput harfang bling
  long blasts canvas caulk,
  wobbling civic plumb.

Plutonic plug gifts sport pawn
  all thwarts akimbo
  with tulip pinion.

Kizilbash at last rhumba
  spurts turncoat ichor
across flarf harfang anchor;
  voila crunk rainbow!
