The Horseshoe Loses Its Stake

She quarrels over sandcastles thought to be indestructible,
walks bare as to keep her rare slippers under glass display,
takes six hungry days for a single-day morsel on china plate,
misses a finch’s flight over a troublesome window smudge,
places belligerent bets over a game of hide-and-go-seek,
severs the serpent’s head, dissolving an embodied wisdom,
succumbs to heat stroke while constructing a storm cellar.

At least the coffin was prepaid.

Consequences

She dumps a worm bucket on his head; so he catches a Marlin with that bait; so she swallows the prize whole; so he feeds a thousand birdlings her vomit; so she charges a plucked feather per ounce; so he earns a profit double charging; so she throws her throwing knife; so he slices a pear from her pierced pear tree; so she calls a beaver for its removal; so he convinces him otherwise over a poker game; so she stands cross-armed on the table; so they slide single bills under her garter belt; so she exposes her penis; so they buy her two drinks

Prescribing Guests Dishwashing Liquid

The swat team kicks the door in to find Yves Klein’s
1957 exhibition of an empty room called The Surface
and Volumes of Invisible Pictorial Sensibility.

Rewind.

The swat team kicks the door in to kick the door in
to find “[…] 25 Snow Whites after ‘monster parents’
bullied officials into admitting that it was not fair
to have just one kid in the title role.” (I am not sure
though if the swat team is several people or one person
moving really fast like “French train named V-150 […]
[that] broke the world speed record for trains on
rails […] [with] an astounding speed of 515 km/h
(356 mph).”)

Klein explains, “the duality of the um in um um when
um of um before post-modern um is um of um trans-
figured in um, but the existence transcendental in […].”
(I am not sure if Klein is naked or if I’m horny right now,
but he makes an attractive Volkswagen Beetle, for I am
“57-year[s young and an] American from Washington
state who claims […] he has had ‘sex’ with 1,000 cars
[…].”)

Rewind.

Park Limited & Better

She strolls to a qualified park where she accepts a limited time
offer, risk-free batch of ducklings, hot clouds, a breeze, hassle-
free bird chirps, larger than life originals of oak leaves, ready-
to-use benches, and free sunshine, gravity, and splash sounds.

The turtle (approved and as seen on TV) demands she enjoys
the Satisfaction Guaranteed. There is no other choice; she is
to be directly satisfied with dreams that come true, with every-
thing provided: flexibility, fundamentals, secrets, and wisdom.

Join the winner! Her lucky day is now! She takes home a life-
time of shakes (no more pesky calm!), fast-responding tempests,
new rabid raccoons, universal invasion of privacy, quicker aging,
easy heartbreak, long term mosquitoes, playful sexual predators,
magnified sunlight (yes! No more sticky sunblock!), smart viruses,
free mother-approved child-trafficking, secure imprisonment,
creative sadism, and fool-proof suicide prevention while supplies
last.

A Language Plague

A virus infiltrates the collective
memory of civilization and eats
away the alphabet, starting
with A, B, and C. Word delivery
resumes smoothly, then the enemy
digests D, E, F. Thoughts whirl
sloppily. Thy goblin swills upon
G, H, I joyously to more, J, K, L;
summons M, N, O; puts up P, Q, R;
wut? S, T, U…; V, W, X…; Y, Z.
