a list compiled by monsieur flogsbottom, canine gourmand:
- dandelion heads
- rabbit turds
- shoes removed beneath the desk while working
- toiletpaper rolls
- discarded articles of clothing, esp. underwear
- one’s own turds
- cigarette butts
- shoes removed at apartment front door upon entering
- paper toweling (entire rolls, unrolled, ideal)
whistling in the dark
once upon a time I used toÂ kind ofÂ blog sort of. after I started splitting my infinitives with abandon. before that I hatched and hosted, erected and let crumble web pages. before that and after that were poems and then not any poems any more. maybe someday. here and there essays unwound, and the odd boil-infested academic paper worked itself up. lo, of yore the right hand aloneÂ scribbledÂ letters on paper of different heft and hue, the graph, the blue and oniony, the softÂ creamyÂ cotton rag. spirals unto infinity of narrow-rule close writ. and then email and email and email ad nauseum. oh microbloggery facebook puffs.
what do you do when gmail’s down?
blog about how it’s down.
dang, the tech desk at nytimes sure is quick on the draw– evidently working in the future…
