The mailman was lost on route. Atlanta stood aghast. The ceiling fan was lit and William wanted to be buried in a sandcastle. Anna saw the man on the Staten Island ferry dancing for dimes. Anton channelled William Service, “The Man Who Knows.” Lynn Jeffries picked up the pieces. And Ariel banjo’ed us.

J.D. channelled Ferlinghetti. Julianne wondered if she’d be happier as a house cat.She scrambled out of your window, glass shards in her hair, saying “Don’t touch me baby, I’m heavy.”
