unsilent sessions

hours end with
chunks swallowed

polite surfeit
of gorged anger

em and tony empathy
now flaccid

leaves rusted in gutters and offices
of damp guilt

will keep

instead of burning a Koran

a Florida gun totin' pastor plans to burn the Koran, September 11, 2010

I plan to burn a roll of toilet paper
I declare this Saturday,
"International Burn a Roll of Toilet Paper Day"

Please join me.
Burn a roll of tp.
Pray to whatever Higher Power you need.
And burn the bum wipe.

We all wipe our bums.
Everyone wipes their bum (or at least they should with enough fibre)

Burning the Koran is a ridiculous inane response to a complex sensitive situation.
Hence, my burning a roll of tp is the only appropriate and consonant response to Pastor Terry Jones.

As I have said before, the only way to maintain sanity in this world is to throw the sardonic at the absurd.

blunt people are lazy

it takes energy to use the right tone
it takes energy to find the right time
it takes energy to find the exact words
it takes energy to be honest
it takes energy to say exactly what you mean

a scalpel is more appropriate than a chainsaw
for most jobs
but it can require more patience

bluntness is not a virtue
it is laziness

pica friends

some people are pica


maybe they even taste


coca-cola friends

craved by our metabolism of relationships

it is easier to hate than exercise

Self loathing is not motivating enough.

I may have to love myself.
