"Passaic center loomed like a dull adjective. Each 'store' in it was an adjective unto the next, a chain of adjectives disguised as stores."

On Hold

by Elaine Equi

Sucking on the pacifier of my iced tall latte.           



White butterflies: flying lint.



My tattoo reads: Whatever you think I’m doing, I’m not doing it.



Sticky self lugged around.

Poison monopoly mouse and trap.



Okay, let’s meet at Duane Reade, but this time use my name.



After years and years, it’s finally dawned on us.

Art is not an object, but a way of looking at an object.



That’s a real Chucky painting.



Only 39, 38, 37 more steps to the Holy Grail of Ice Cream.



dog days

kerosene breeze


cartoonish faces

heckled by light



My hair doesn’t do stringy. Frizzy, yes; stringy, no.



tamales! tamales!

orchids! orchids!


torchids      ormales




Are you feeling super imposed on?



Three heads are better than two.



Autumn Mutability

Drip-dry Rain

Net of Dust



We’ve had this lack of conversation before.



Please be patient. Prayers are being answered in the order in which

they were received.
