1. so the dog is on his mutinous kick again

     

  2. d’état

    staged a coup
    against the blues
    on the backs
    of small favors
    and tiny rescues

  6. he throws the rocks!
    he picks them up in his mouth
    and tosses them
    onto my key-
    board

     

  7. i spy
    the hem
    tail flaps
    whisk ‘round
    the corner past
    the street into the alley

    textured
    plaid in all
    dark purples
    eggplant black
    to violet
    at its lightest

    cuffed
    pressed
    cuffing
    pressing
    dressed
    to be
    undressed

    tucked
    creased
    kerchief
    pocket
    smooth

    moves
    in
    reaches
    center table

    my
    blind
    hand

    awaits

    it is not honesty
    it is not trump

    a sexy weave
    more like silk

    nameless
    stripped
    unnamed

    it is
    your
    strong suit

    slick as water
    just as gone

     
  8. so we went outside this morning
    and now my dog has a rock collection

     

  9. crow bar

    iron black
    tire

    chisel wedge
    pry

    i
    talk too
    much

    especi
    ally
    when

    i am nervous

    wish you would
    remind me to
    shush

    if only
    you could
    get a word
    in edge-

    wise

    Making this terrifying knockoff Cheburashka was exhausting, so I took a four hour nap, and I have woken up to rain and the second season of The Munsters. I like my life.

    Dear Students,

    When you are sad, watch old cartoons. This one is from 1929.

    Love,

    PS For fun, hit the space bar in quick succession to see how the skeletons move. These are good skeletons to copy. Very easy lines and a lot of presence.

    only the most amazing advice ever

     
     

  12. listen to see
    look to scratch
    reach to sniff
    smell to touch
    rub close up to hear
    the sound it makes
    finally
    the perfect
    too much

  14. how many mammals does it take to make a murder

    step away from the toilette!
    do not flush the fish!!

    are you not
    a fan of Kill Bill?

    this discussion makes me
    think of that next to last
    scene

    at Bill’s house
    the goldfish
    BB killed it

    then finally
    in the very
    closing
    frames

    the kiddo
    the bathroom floor
    the tiles
    in front of the motel
    commode

    and her sobbing

    heart draining
    through small
    breasts
    onto a cold floor

     

  15. litmus test {& a view of the pipes undersink}

    i am not sure
    you are human
    until or unless
    you have sobbed
    once on a cold
    bathroom floor
