Coming to your house
is a hullabaloo
of questions
soon followed
by eats.

And what I like best
is how amazing I look!
and how I’ve lost weight
when we greet.

And how I know
so much more
than the average
bore.

How my stories are
funny.
And sweet.

And how you
could go on.
That I’m simply
the bomb.

From my eyelashes
down to my
feet.

And when you ask
if I’m dreaming
I’d have to say

Yes.


And we’ve got to
keep
meeting like this.

this is for
the man who locks
the
building
every night. because
he used to bring his
mother flowers
and she thought
the world of him, she thought
the world
of
him.

and this is for
the girl who asked
her grandma why she
peeled
the celery.

you can’t

she thought. but then
she didn’t know
the world
could peel
the skin off skin could
peel the skin
off
skin.

so this is for
the man who locks
the buildings

and
.      the girl.

Late, Late

I love you crab.

with your scurry scurry tracks
ghost writing
on sand.

with your flurry of tasks
that of course you’ll
get done.

with your hurry hurry claws
dig-dig-digging.

with your hurry hurry legs
side-step-stepping.

with your beady beady eyes
laser-sighting me, so
enticingly, watch-watch-watching me
watch you
right back.

I love you,
crab.

If the Benefits of Using Words were Tested like Claims about
Results Typically Achieved with the use of Anti-Aging
Serums and Other Rubs containing
Suspended Vitamins and Blue
Things that might as well

Then words would certainly
have best results when
fresh-squeezed and liberally applied
to affected areas.

Newly formed words and sentence
fragments could literally unleash
the power
to slow visible
signs of thinking.
About aging.

Under ideal conditions,
whole-sentences would peel, plump, spritz, lift,
separate, renew, adjust, enhance, and refresh one’s
inner-radiance.

If used as part of a regular
regimen, the right paragraph of words
will very likely
reduce the occurrence
of you
sounding a lot
like you.

64 percent of listeners heard an immediate
improvement*.

In consumer studies conducted by
fairly prestigious independent research
facilities,
some users would undoubtedly experience
randomized selective
deafness, a routinely documented
side effect
of increased word-flow.

If you buy them, more than one Wikipedia
stub, that we can’t find
links to anymore, says
words
should be stored
at room temperature and in rare
instances have been known
to cause unexpected reactions in
persons with physical
attributes.

Which is why
we’ve developed
this one-page
instructional guide
outlining
the order of application†.

Individuals previously diagnosed with thinning
skin and other human
conditions should consult
a communication professional (or drink
a Shot-Ski) before undergoing
prolonged exposure.

*Survey results only verifiable
when using 100% organically certified words
regularly, over time.

Actual results may vary.
