Sample Text

Watching The Weather Channel in San Francisco
(bouts of light flirt through blinds)


...what's that she said?
                 forthcoming from the
bosom she heaved
                                   'a bountiful gulf moisture'
spreading from the south
              yea upward
curving
                 munificence

lotion unleashed in the headwind
              drifting slowly
to the four corners of my toilet bag

there she blows

here we blew

too northerly
      too westerly
               to feel the bounty brush...

...what's that beneath my finger?

Lowly, longly a wail went forth...

(Aside)

after motionless
the tick comes terrible
awaking the audible vocalist
in the next room
with big retribution and
flecking off
the dawn chorus
banning
hecklers in the outback
is what we all know killed
cock robin and
the desired shade of
flaming
redbreast
