Inflections

THIS WOMAN I WORK WITH’S GARDEN

Oh god it is beautiful.



YOU CAN CRY ALL YOU WANT ABOUT A COLD UNCARING UNIVERSE

But it’s one of the dogs next door’s birthday today.



YOU KNOW HOW YOU ALWAYS GET

That little sort of
Tingle
In your scalp?



THE WINE WAS SENTIMENTAL IN A CHEAP AND DRAMATIC WAY

I was sitting
Just as I am now
Eating wild game jerky
Wondering what the fuck happened.



MY SOURCES ARE TELLING ME

The Pope is really feeling the weight of the brand.



HERE COMES A TRAIN

You ever been hit by a train?



THEN I GET OUT MY PHONE LIKE I’M TAKING A PICTURE

Sue me.



BASICALLY WHAT IT BOILS DOWN TO IS

The deejay drops the needle.



THAT’S LIKE DEJUAN

He totally skipped grad school.



I’M IN SEASON TWO

To the best of my knowledge and belief.



BUT THE ACTUAL I GUESS

See this is where I just don’t know.



I’M CALLING ABOUT MY SON

I want to earlybird him for next season.



SOMETHING BROKE LOOSE

And it decided not to be
A single player game anymore.



IT WASN’T A GOOD MORNING FOR WHITE PRIVILEGE

So I went back to bed.



AND THEN THEY LOSE

To fuckin’ A&M.



WE GREW UP DIFFERENTLY

Our parents didn’t go out during the day.



I MIGHT GO HIT A BUCKET

Later.



THEY SAY LOVE IS LIKE SHOOTING A MOVIE

For every few minutes of Action!
There are hours and hours and hours of just waiting around.



WELL AND I HAVE A HIGH FLASHPOINT

I know that about myself.



I PROMISED NOT TO SAY ANYTHING

And here I am telling you.

Siblings Reminiscing


AND THEN IT’S TO THE POINT NOW TOO

Murals and muscle car shows.
Sheiks and Pizza Chalets.
Mood elevators.
Grain elevators.
Tankers waiting offshore.



WE LIVED ON CASH AND PRIZES

Incorporeal nature took care of the rest.



LOOK

French-Japanese cuisine.
Is that new?



FALSE POSITIVES

Parents.
School.
Prayer flags.



REMEMBER ON MAIN STREET

To where it was like the laundromat was our playground?
Casa de Bubbulz.



GRANDPA MADE US PROMISE

To scatter his ashes at Nude Beach.



OH YEAH WELL SO

The woman across the street?
Tracy.
Stacy.
Stacy.



SO YEAH OK AS I SIT HERE

It brings a lot of things to my head.



I’M KIND OF VAGUE WITH THE SPECIFICS BUT

Talk about full circle.



HOPE

Vibrating like a hummingbird’s heart
On a cactus needle.



LIKE A GOOD AMOUNT OF MONEY

Like from a settlement.



BACK THEN A JEEP

Looked like a
Jeep.



THE YOUNGEST?

The one she had with the speculative biologist?



TOO MUCH BRAINSTORMING

At unsheltered bus stops.



SHE DOESN’T KNOW THAT I KNOW

She told her kids to get out.



CAUTION

Buddha
Xing.



I REACHED OUT

But she basically went dark.



FATE IS A SULTRY SONGSTRESS

A whiff of perfume in her wake.
The beep of a locked car.



BUT NOW I HEAR

The guy that did
The work there:
Pills, cash, whatever.



CARTESIAN EPISTEMOLOGY

Is what it is.
The first meltwaters of spring.
Take immediate delivery.
Uniform plus tools.
Christ the King.



I’M GOING TO MAKE TOP RAMEN

Are you interested?

Determinism


OK I’M YOU

Tuesday afternoon tallboy.



CATFISH ACTION

Has been good at the lake.
And the air you breath isn’t your mortal enemy.



BIRDSONG

Broadly cast.



I SAW WHERE

They were saying
Some rain earlier.



MY PLAN REMOVES THE TRAGEDY FROM THE ROMANCE

And reduces the risk of herbal tea shock.
Practically eliminates the hail of police gunfire.



THE COMPLETE WORKS

Recorded backward.
I wish I could hit a button for a million likes on these dope beats.



TECHNO AND HOUSE

From the creator of Welcome to the Anthropocene.



IT KIND OF AT ONE POINT

Reterritorialized my thinking cap.



SCOREBOARD

Georgia 36
Georgia O’Keeffe 14
0 Comments.



A QUESTION I STRUGGLE WITH IS

Has a new golden age for TV bowling arrived?



I JUST GOT THAT VIBE

Very sort of message in a bottle.



YOU KNOW THAT LIKE LITTLE STAND?

That little nut and fruit stand?



I KNOW IT SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY

But it wasn’t.

What is the Reply of This?


MIDNIGHT KOREA TIME

Without never go!



AND I SAID OK

Ima school your ass real quick here homes.
A 5-under 67.
80 in a 35 zone.



WHAT IS THE REPLY OF THIS?

Totally chingón.



UNCOMMMONLY FINE INKLINGS

Instinctively linked.
Distinctively synched.
Savor the absurdum.



¡WHAT?

One of the dopest sequences ever.
I bump this shit deluxe!



EVERYWHERE HAS BEEN PRETTY MUCH GOING OFF!

Everyone is sending it!



STAMPEDING LIKE LEMONS

A million views in 24 hours.



OH AND LISTEN TO THIS

Chk chk chk chkchkchk.
Eek eek.
Bewbewbew bewbewbew.



TACTILE RICHNESS THROUGH CONCISION

How rad is that?
Right?



ONE POINT FOUR

Million.
Billion.
Something.

A Low Down Dirty Too Bad of a Shame


WHAT WE’RE LOOKING AT IS A FLOOR

Which is a pretty high floor.



WELL-QUALIFIED BORROWERS

Flyers in full light of our planet’s largest moon.



NO I MEAN ABSOLUTELY AND YES IVELISSE

She was great that way.



I HEARD THIS WAS A NINETY PERCENT OF TWO TWENTY THING

But maybe it was just the HVAC talking.



A WONDERFUL BEAUTIFUL

You met her.



LEAST WELL KNOWN YET MOST SOUGHT AFTER

If that makes any sense.



AND UH WELL

I tell you what.
That feedback loop?



SHE CALLED AND BOOM

More bandwidth.



SHE COULDN’T BE ANY NICER IF SHE TRIED
.
Not too many women are keen on taking on somebody else’s kids.



SHE WAS ABOUT TO FALL ASLEEP EARLIER

Now she’s like I’m not tired.



WE QUIT AT SIX

Guests were due in an hour.



THEN SHE WAS LIKE

Trying to like.



BUT THIS TIME

Holy fuck.
This time.



I WONDER AT WHAT POINT DID SHE REALIZE

She was no longer on the balcony?



EVERYONE’S HEART

Was in their mouth.
With garbanzo beans
And Syrah
And feta cheese.

Congeries


I JUST THINK LIKE

You know what I mean like.



IT DEFINITELY HASN’T BEEN A BAD WEEK

Cliché as it sounds.



I’M JUST WONDERING

This stuff bothers the shit out of my brain.



BEAR ON THE RIDGE

Beer in the fridge.



I ALWAYS BELIEVE

When your stuff is where you want it to be
The results will come.



BETWEEN THAT AND SHE’S STILL GOT HER JOB

Yes it do.



PARA MI

Mexican bling!



PREPARE TO MEET

Your deductible.



WE NO MORE GOT THERE THAN

The goddam water shot up 20-30 feet.



HE TRIED AND SHOULDN’T HAVE

The river toad burger
With sweet potato fries.



WE NEED EVERY THERM WE CAN FIND

Put some shorts on, honey.



DO YOU WANT TO MAKE IT A MEAL?

She asked the virus.
About you.



THAT CARD GAME DOG

Where everybody flips their cards.



WELL I DECLARE

Martial law!
