An Iron Fish Rusts

up in the hills at this age now
even my stick takes a rest
on a tarmac a single stone
like aloneness
in the glen the silence of an echo
waiting for sound
in the empty sky a crow crows
the empty sound of a crow

As an afterthought, Blonk said: “Going to decimate San Francisco? Then you must withhold the admission, or prepare to lay aside through strict quarantine all shipping of your irridescent mediocrity.” On which they had embarked. Thus, from San Francisco to the farthest capitals of the Occident, they saw take hold The Condition in all its ugly and irrefutable proportions.
