In the Interests of Beauty

His twin daughters called him
The Hairy Ape, and,
of course, danced around
him, in a scratching,
hunching way.

At any rate, his wife
insisted he periodically
have the sheaves removed
from his back.

Can thee say ouch!? 

Ripped off excruciatingly!

No adverb strong enough...
the language inadequate.

Another comic opera war
erupts and he, though old,
is drafted as the leaders
go ape!

The young troopers can't stop
laughing at him.

Well, regardless of absurd country,
everyone reaches a final scenario.

And he is so so grievously wounded!

The enemy, in the person of a
jumpy teen, prepares his just-
lingering body.

Gluing a sort of thick poultice
to his back.

A sort of wryness nesting in the
corners of his mouth.

"Oh please! Not that!"--from
our expiring hero naturally.

"With such pleasure you can't
even imagine, Tarzan!  I hate
all you old fuckers!"

God Forever Has Something to Say

When Buzz and Artzy offered to help Des with his accounts, they found meticulous  procedures!

"But," commented Artzt, "Bottom line is that it's all..."

Buzz completed the thought: "Entirely 
fucked up!"

"But so so ORGANIZED!"

Sneered bitterly, our Buzz then.

"If you wanna make God laugh, have a PLAN!"

-Watching women play soccer
from Paris.

-But Visa insists it is, rather, 
a journey?

-Today's favorite metaphor,
saying you fucked up
everything heretofore, but
should be arriving
somewhere nonetheless!

-Will Arabs attack before I

-Nothing is more likely.

-Even in Rye, New York?

-A hotbed!

-Make America grim again!

-Too absurdly funny for that.

Doctor For the Moment

With Huds all sedated and cleaned,
he was declared ripe to be wheeled into
one of the operating rooms.

When the supervising physician queried
"What's he here for?"

And nobody knew.

"Well, then, who's left in the Doctors'

"The Mad Egyptian only."

"Does he have a specialty?"


"Oh well, patient a male, seventy-four.
Bound to have peeing problems.
Guess he could try something
vaguely urological?"

"As you instruct."

"This hospital solves problems!"

"Hell yeah!"

American Anthem Broken Down

Glory Glory Hallelujah
We are gonna sock it to yuh!

The Man Who Kept On Learning

-Czech is a beautiful language!

Whereupon all left the table save he.

-It...remains beautiful, despite everything.

Penny came in, but they wouldn’t let
her near him.

War is fun!

Thieves become Patriots.
Midst other miracles
made over. Truly!

Not so much if you’re
Jew, Spick, or

But the patch you wear
can be made becoming!

Oh I
forgot, so homey-
old-fashioned in a time

of implanted chips.
And Auschwitz Express
needn’t run. Hey!

We’ll deathray
you having a nice tea!

Maybe with honey,

Trio Here and There

through hay

dust from
loft to

half farming,

half hallucination.
Wife chooses


A story of
some complexity,
would you believe?

With years.
He got high

school equivalency
at 40.

Celebration! Our
farmer bringing
the word

from Lenmelocur.

Who's the Pet?

Old doggerel:

"A dog is a friend
Not taken in by sham.

He doesn't know your troubles
And doesn't give a damn!"

Last line more applying 
to cats, methinks.

Add spooky and mysterious
as you earn their scorn.

At any rare, my latest pet is 
Hobart Grimshaw, Robot,

and, last thing he said:

Is that your fear masquerading 
as courage again?

Yeah, he digs pretty good.

But, don't worry:

Literature Occurring

Insofar as I see anything,
Literature occurs

at the intersection
of computer games

and comic books.
My friends grow

clever, discussing
intricacy of plot,

character, motivation,
and the like.

What is merely visual,
or auditory, we leave
to others.

Oh, and we still think
Shakespeare one
Cool Dude.

But please give
that language
a pass!

Medal or So

When Mark died, Pidge decided he’d
been a war hero...stretching thus a thirteen-
month tour and dishonorable discharge.

But many such incorrigibles rise, no?

His family certainly pleased with high
military anecdotes sent to The Capitol Voice
web page!

Lies! thunder you. Yeah, like the very
essential atmosphere today.

Hey! Have some useful fun before
Truth inevitably returns!

Probably heralded by murdering

Side Order

-Well, tired of hearing
about it.

-As teller, me too.

-What you gonna...?

-Usual nothing.

-But with Great Noise?

-We've met, right? 
Anyway, better than
other major side.

-Mr Shy? 

Who wouldn't
say SHIT if he had
a mouthful.

-I'm getting the two

-Hopeless--and I never,
ever, say that!

-I feel privileged!

Dream and Checklist

-Had a dream of women
running in male pajamas.

-That's a great one!
The generous cut makes
them especially cute.

-I did love it! Ought to
be checklist presented
every morning.

-Cute to ravishing. Check one!

-How about Total Bitch on

-If that's your preference!

-I live for cute, and you
muck it up with sick.

-Uh huh? Just a matter of time...
aforementioned bitch will
run you down!

-Do that daily.

-I mean literally!

-Bloody Hell!

-Bingo, Bozo!

Hubby Loss in America

-Let's see now.
You're at Security
because you lost
your husband?

-This time I hope 
it takes!

-Oh? And if another
woman finds him?

-I'll send his clothes--
minus the Hawaiian
shirts which are
already rags.

-Uh huh? And maybe
your bite not quite
as bad as your bark?

-Oh yeah? Just ask
him when he shows.

-What...makes people
so sarcastic?

-Look around!

Any Which Way But Goose

-Are you the man lost
his wife?


-Meaning you lost her
many times?

-Could be.

-Or lost several wives?

-Perhaps that I am several men?

-I'm stopping this now.
Mr Ambiguous!

-But that begins it anew!

-Language is a fool's game!

-Isn't it? And blessedly!

-No way!

-Infinite ways!

-Super highlight! I finally get home, vamoose into the den, 
maybe have a belt!

-And scream to the kindly, enveloping walls?


-But you're known to be nice!

-Academy Award!

-But if everyone like you...?

-Who gives a flying fuck?

-Just a mood!

-Yeah? Perpetual then!

-How about your Stelly? Love?

-Let her break balls elsewhere!

Blend, Forfend

Man who did everything at the drop of a hat.

But...was a time when American men didn’t
wear many hats.

And as a result, then, did very little of anything.

They’re back, though, as is his impetuosity!

You think he can’t have much mind.

The time always has one, though.

Up to you fitting in or not.

Exact Philosophy with Repetition

-When you're done
you're done.

End of story,
all she wrote.

-What if you
don't know
you're done?

-Then you're
really really

Why Peter Great

Destiny might ride with us
today, but

there is no reason for it
to interfere with lunch.

The Orcas Belt It Out!

Japanese scientist reporting
an extensive repertoire

traveled from each member
of the hugely melodious pod,

swelling as of a concert hall
underwater! They knew us so

why waste bubbling-too-
soft subtleties?

The Day, Finally

For the final three to receive the
critical vote naming one.

After the most spirited campaign
in the club’s history.

Signs, slogans...the works!

One lucky woman receives him!

Gwen, handler, told him to show
Nine sharp!

At eight-thirty he peruses his image
in the brilliant mirror.

Should I, ruminated he, as tides heaved
and mountains slid into icy bays, preen?
