i’ll soon cause PhotoChop to “flip”…
ie, to *re*-flip (*back* to “true”
right-is-right-dammit orientation)…
all the new shots. meanwhile, here’s
a through-the-looking-glass shot of
eniledam’s kitchen. very likely the
last of the series. god this new
equipment is annoying.

king of the lists

the shelf is still right where i photographed it
but the books have all been moved to a new shelving
development. i’m lazy t’ *photograph* it just now,
so what you see here is it for tonight.

and, yes, i’ve actually *read* most of these…
several of them more than once and more than
a handful *out loud*. i haven’t kept up.
but for quite a while there, it was steve’s
america around here (and millions of people
knew it). to rival the sheer number-of-words-
-read in my life, you’d have to be isaac asimov
or something. the prize here is probably the
_green_mile_ set. all but one of ’em are firsts.

and other stuff that
madeline knows, not i.

good though. and i haven’t
tried anything *new* in,
i guess, a couple weeks.
and *still* can’t fry an
egg to my own satisfaction.

squirm before you can crawl.
crawl before you can walk.
walk before you can run.
run before you can run far
or fast. but never think
you’re done with squirming

or dishwashing.

four 4’s

one song, two chords
three frets, four verses

one people, two jews
three opinions, four gospels

one planet, two choices
three directions, four dimensions

one god, two religions
three idols, four horsemen

here first.)
