SYLLOGISM

If highways are
rivers
Then roads are
tributaries
If roads are
veins
Cars are
platelets
Your liver is a carwash.

The love never decreases no matter how much you gave it to other person. The love merely increases.

My conscience is not for hire. Not sorry.
Am I not a man and a brother?

To deny someone the means for escape is to be complicit in their entrapment.

TO BE RECITED IN THE QUEEN’S HIGHEST ENGLISH…

I
was
given
a
toooooooooooooor
of
Paaaaaaaahliament
by a
prominent
Brit
Sir Greg
I even saw
Hague
give a
speech
from the
flooooooooooooor

When we passed
through
the House
of Looooooooooords
he told me
sir Frankie
once stood
in the
very
same
spot
and asked
whether
the Queen
would
make
HIM
a Looooooooooooord

(But
alas
my
dear

little

fellow,
one
must
be
ENGLISH
you know)

But no bother:
for years
all over
the wooooooooorld
on
stages
and
screens
everywhere
a good number
of
…queens…
already have.

If it’s beautiful, it may be art; if it confounds, it definitely is.

It is foolish to write off that which you don’t fully understand, simply because you don’t fully understand.

are actually
inside
pretty

A DAY LIKE ANY OTHER…

it was
a day
like
any
other
and then
it
wasn’t
but it
taught us
a day
like
any
other
is a
precious
day
indeed

GENTLEMANVIPMASTEROFTHEUNIVERSE

a
plump
Cheshire
smile
a
pair
of
spectacles
you think of
as
spectacles
so you
might create
a
the
lights
flicker on
by themselves
now
when you enter
a room;
yet you
still
faintly
feel
the
brittle
clicking
shadows
of scattering
roaches.
A
BROAD
CHESHIRE
SMILE!
You
pretend
you never
ate
macaroni and cheese
out of
a
box.

OTHER DOGS

I walked my dog on the beach
today
for the first time
he kept running away
from the waves
as
they
rolled
in
then he saw other dogs
running right into them
so he
ran right into them
too.
People
sometimes
take longer
to…
venture…
into…
the…
…waves.
I think I need to be around other dogs.

If something feels wrong, think about why. Listen to yourself. Then do something to change it.

An American’s paradox…
You stand
so small
at the
base
of this
great
gleaming
monument
but feel
as tall

cuesta
la compasión
hacia
uno
que
te
ha
maldicho
a lo largo de
años
pero
por
haber
experimentado
eso
se viene
a entender
muy
bien
el
dolor
