Daddy Our Ballroom is Full of Guests – Matilda Z. Halen

They say I will see you again when our ballroom is full of guests

All the devils are there.

“One day you will see the rain in Spain, my pride my joy.”

Velvet chairs and your favourite movie

I don’t remember Vladivostok

 From the Lighthouse in Lisbon

To the fire of Bucharest

I remember the snowfall

on the 14th Street North West

Exciting Things I Said to my Mom Yesterday (Spoiler Alert: US) – Jesse Prado

Omw to the park I thought getting there’s not gonna be the problem
But the getting back
And that was actually hella hard
On your way there it’s the onslaught of anxiety over whether
Or not you have to pee
But I was fine
So then it was the pain in my tendons on either sides of my knee otw back
It happened whenever I tried to rush
I had to slow down a lot
And trick myself into thinking it’s all in my head until I got back
It was Easter Sunday too

go woke without getting sand in one’s crotch. I’ve made
a point of adopting that old custom from slave times 
of leaving 3 black-eyed peas on my plate for good luck.

Synthesis – Alex Kies

CAT III

Thanks again for the last weekend. In Lockdown, being in California is unlike what you go through every day. For example, the plumbing is all fucked. The wolves are losing their home. And then look at Facebook.

Page numbers are coming. Book of the Dead.

A little boy grew a gun out of his hand like the first time I saw it on the radio show.
