Legislators lie
to constituents
but not each other.

One is tempted
to cite honor
among thieves.

Using morality
as glib's not.

Science Loosened

-To hear quantum quacks tell it: multiple
copies of me contend mid several worlds.

-In which have you achieved your ambition
of Queen of the Balls?

-Dethroning you? Wez wouldn't dare.

-Where are Straights in these?

-Dulling universes and graying black holes.

-I reject all of that! God doesn't play dopes
with the multiverse.

-I keep the music at a moderate level in the apartment,
but it’s always louder in the bathroom.

-Natural resonator. Small. Network of pipes.
Even the toilet, save when you clamp your
capacious ass over it!

-How long have you been a Romantic?

to adjust scenes thus
framing us more nobly, per-

Dinky, Rinky, Pinky, and Winky, she chose the last,
who actually winked on refreshing occasion.

She'd show him the ropes, she thought,
kneeling down to the lower shelves
in Walgreens Cosmetics.

So much more to offer than clustering fleas
with their prattle of hair and nails.

Whereas she was encyclopedic, and had oomph
they didn't know existed!

“You’d be lucky, Winky!” she whispers, rising to encounter the cleansers.

Surveys present the same old story

of love and glory. Not.
Romantics prefer rot.
Which is peachy

So we can admire them set

reality’s hardware, husbands
precede wives in the trudge

or O the towering feeling

-I like to stay liquid. You?

-'bout quarter of that. I'm just a rookie.

-Speaking which, your impression after your
first year?

-I had no idea it was this corrupt.

-And am I corrupt, in your virginal imagination?

-Absolutely. Definitely. Without reservation.

-And yourself?

-I've managed in such a short time to reach a no-man's
land of utter filth.

-I see. And do you have a plan of ritual cleansing?

-Nope. No way back. Ever.

-I'll drink to that.

-Yeah, that's the best way for depravity: celebrate it!


-Amen Amen I say to you that if one young broker...

-Does that translate into votes?

-It will.

-So, ride the stupid into The White House?

-Not the first time.

“The man in the village knows bikes. We’ll throw it into
the Range Rover in the morning. He’s a locksmith
but there’s adequate overlap, so I understand.

I’ve phoned your parents and you have their
to stay the night.

I think we’ve both done a first-rate job
with your injuries.
I won’t call the doctor.
He has gotten old and he
panics. He’d insist
on hospital, which is nonsense.

Maria is ironing pajamas. You’ll swim in them but...
more champagne?

We’ll also look at that spot which tossed you. If you’re
to sue, make haste! My wife vows to leave nothing.

Now please stop looking guarded! I’m not
The Sheik of Araby.

At night when you’re asleep
Into your tent I’ll creep.”

They both laugh. Except he was, and did.
Now she’s the
new wife but without a hyphen
in her name. More modern,
has kept her own.

The bike hangs on the garage wall, still unrepaired.

A pinch of her gross fat indicates to her it must
be made

But the new man in the village is retired as a Trek mechanic from The Tour de France. He wants to
fit her
to a Domane. Says her dinged machine
worth five hundred
towards it.

“Get it! Do!' husband exclaims. "Then you’ll
be able once more to peddle your ass

around the village!”

They laugh.

Aftershock of the Fawn

If you want to discover the American conservative's

Politics, Wives, Angels

-Thinking of going into politics.

-That’s a mighty go. Can you lie with a straight face?

-Don’t I play poker twice a week?

-Yeah but that’s mostly silent.

-Well I can turn on the blab machine with the best.

-Have you tried it with the wife on this momentous matter?


-Afraid hey? Who could blame you? I’d be horrified in getting you we’d get her.

-Always wondering what makes her so fierce.

-God does, and he forgot to turn it off. It was
necessary when she
protected the cubs, but
they’re lions and lionesses themselves now.

-It’s all academic. I’m...resigning from this political life.

-Short career, but brilliant! At any rate, your Guardian Angel just before had whispered the same into my ear.

-Let’s buy him a drink.

-Done! And I got Fritos not even opened.

-That’s fine, I guess, but we gotta go easy in making
the other
angels jealous!

-Horses and Senators Sleep Standing Up, hey?

-Well this one did. Don't remember a word of
that speech. At any rate, I had burned the proverbial
candle the previous evening while celebrating the
humiliation of our despicable enemy.

-Ecstatic right wing blogs still can't shut up about the
speech even after all this time. “Brilliant! Incisive!
A philosophy of integrity presented without equivocation.”

-Equivocation huh?--my strongest suit.

-No longer. You're clad in the blinding armor of
righteousness! Smoting the barbarians!

-Too clanky. And smotey.

-Well what...?

-I had painted myself into one horrible corner.
the other side put forth a resolution
praising me,
I couldn’t vote for it.

-Out of humility?

-Out of Party!

-Be all that what it must. This is way it is with Champions: One True Way!

-I need a wavering drink.

-You need nothing. You're God!

-That never lasts.

The house seems
roaring itself

though it's the storm.
Panes turn gelatin,

of place dis-

over a foreignness,
horrifying. Your desired

neighborhood dis-
tributed elsewhere.
