William Z Winsom certainly never before put
groceries away naked.
But his clothes had been soaked from dragging bags upstairs through very
nearly solid heat. A sort of ticking came
from outside, leading, he hoped, to the promised thunder shower.
He discounted the perfunctory tornado warning, one a day for the preceding week.
Droplets whipped across his neck when he placed Special K atop the frig. As he
meditated on their appearance indoors, turning to the windows to check, the front
of the apartment ripped off with a roar, exposing him to the Billy Benloes, dragging
Grandpa, drunk, to a shelter.
"Always knew YOU was some kinda
pre-vert!" he cackled, black debris
circling the luminous group.

-I was cheerleader and he star quarterback.
Make of that what you will. You and hubby
laugh at everything anyway.
-Not this. Not him. He's a jock worshiper.
-Anyway we got married. Monster bash.
Then he was drafted into the pros.
That's a short story with an anti-O'Henry ending. Broke his leg in pre-season
and never could get back.
So he’s small college coach, now, and I work
for the dean. It’s okay. I like all the women there. Not usual with me.
But before all of that! Early matrimony proved
rocky altogether. And we had this one fight
I couldn't even describe. I mean everything
was on the table--and bleeding.
I told him if we were going to go on like that,
we should shoot each other. He left, hot!
When he came back--I thought because he remembered something especially
biting he forgot to...
-No! He dissolved in tears and begged forgiveness on his knees.
-And what did you conclude from...?
-They never really learn how to fight.

The Right Wing Government had featured much Freedom-Mouthing, and leaders
in limousine monstrosities followed by
Yes Persons in buses.
The leaders were murdered by the Revolution,
and scruffy newcomers took over in jeeps.
The Yes Persons, of course, switched
their tunes seamlessly.
Soon enough, the revolutionists evolved
into Armani suits, the limos returned,
and everything relaxed.
Five years in and we were pretty much
into the Every Man a King, Every
Woman a Queen phase.
Which takes us to the present milieu, best illustrated by a walk I took with my friend
The first wave we encountered wore PERSON OF THE YEAR tshirts. Followed by LITTLE LEAGUE CAPTAINS of their various times.
Then GIRL SCOUT GOLDENS!--
COOKIE SELLERS EXTRAORDINAIRE!
Most of the award winners had pushed
ahead as a sort of impromptu parade,
some carrying actual trophies which
flayed around dangerously. Such flashing hazard proved too chaotic to TOP INNOVATIVE BUSINESSMAN 2032.
He organized them by screaming.
BOWLERS OF THE DECADE, ST PAUL, helped him, and soon was restored aimless milling, and Top Innovative's sanity.

GUTHRIE THEATER smiled, once we got close enough to read his tshirt.
We were about to test him with obscure allusions when a Grandmother shrieked
at us in no recognizable language.
Then we did decipher "Where's your accomplishments, Numbnuts
Nothings from Nowhere?”
"Mine are home. Mother taught us not to flaunt." I answered.
My friend added, "When all are marvels, who does the work?"
“Not you!” she snapped, this CHEERLEADER OF THE CENTURY. “I recognize your type, calling everybody whores and sluts!"
“If the shoe fits...” he fired back.
“Yeah? Well, when they snuffed the old regime, they missed you two. Well, let me tell you, that can be remedied!” She joined
THE PARAMOUNT-TOP DELINQUENTS (FORMER) CLUB, playing boccie in
Finally she pointed to us, her silk jacket taking on a leaping iridescence in her agitation after missing a blocking shot.
Her team threatened with upraised fists too.
Discretion being the better part, etc., we slid though the prestigious crowd, finally entering the Hot Dog Depot.
Award-Winning of course.
We sat on a very large and quite artistic

-How’s it going with Jeanette
-It hath made me mad!
-Maybe you should change your luck.
Kick her outa the bed for Bruce.
-Ah yes, Bruce, the archetype! Curlers in
one hand, decorating swatches
in the other. The Berstein’s sofa
haunts him! It was never quite right!
-Whatever. You might find more love.
-He’s as severely menstrual as Jeanette!
-That’s impossible, I mean physically.
-More things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
-How ‘bout yours?

And does. Not a one I can assure you!

Study History, Anthropology etc
Thoroughly interested in how
they did it then, since we don't
really know what we’re doing
at present. Our doubt for now
concerns the endless rout
of so-cautious thought by
fatal happenstance. “O
if I could only get a breathing
space!” On that personal level,
it‘s not you who writes finis.
But without much adieu
we’ll all muddle through

“It's not bitter, not sweet.
It's a star-spangled treat.”
The patriotism of beer
needs go unchallenged,
a universal. The putzes
in Munich burned so
with stricken ambition
to quickly remake the world
and opposing faces, yet their
sodden crusade highlighted
an expiration date in
a thousand years! As
