we are doing the dash between
this thing and this other
thing. three balls. a new
groundhog under the shed.
the storm of chipmunks
along the road. the words
to find. the documents to
fill. we have so many
goddamned projects. we have
so many things
open. every day we are
solving the problems
and meanwhile the patient
bush does its turning red.
and meanwhile the feckless
air does its turning
Your hover is usually okay, Runt.
It makes me feel safe.
Cuz yes you’re so big and so strong, ok?
All I’m saying is it’s just
I’m dropping a poop.
It’s why I usually go off into the trees.
Or to the back of the yard.
Near the fence.
If you hover during a poop situation
it gives me the panic.
And then I have to pinch it off before it’s ready.
I’m just wondering…
do you think if we put those two
Collies into a whiskey barrel and
roll them down the hill
we’d still be able to hear their
barking in hell?
we’ve done all the preliminary investigations.
based on everything
we’ve seen and smelled
we can say confidently:
a browning is happening.
Wait wait wait.
I swear, it’s gonna happen.
I’ve done it like five gajillion times now.
I can will it to move.
With my ears.
Are you watching??
Right. Ow bout this one, then:
A Bald Man walks into a bar. He asks the bartender for a bottle of water.
All about the timing, innit.
OK, OK, OK! I got one:
How many Bald Mans does it take to write a novel?
Shit I have no idea how to finish this thing! Let’s go get a drink and think about it!
I’m pretty sure he called you
Has he had the flask out?
The days are filled with quiet evaporation.
we did a stink and drink, which wasn’t so bad. we
got to sleep in a dome with the Bald Man. we sat
around a fire. we cooked food and we ate it. and if
we needed to pee we just peed. and if we needed to stink
we just stank. sometimes the people thought
there might be bears in the dark. I guarantee you
there were not bears in the dark. because I bark for plenty
of things in the night. I feel like I would bark for bears. I
feel like bears are something I would bark for.
