Awesome!! Totally Awesome!!

The Fence Avengers

I am barbed wire!

And I am a board made of wood!

And I am a sprawling branch!

We are The Fence Avengers!


That's it.

That's all we got.

We are The Fence Avengers!

1,000 words or less

if you got a warbler, then warbling's what you got
if you got a bush tit, the jokes come fast and hot
if you got a camera, and pictures are your thing
you capture all the changes, winter-summer-fall and spring

Yes, yes, fog

we have fog on the menu tonight
served in a variety of ways:
in front of you
down the street
in a harbor
in a meadow
between buildings
around buildings

the droplets are imported
 in the pockets of drunkards
and slowly released
like change at the laundromat

a long, long time ago
i went home with a girl made of fog
before i could hold her
she vanished on the highway
barely sighing

i found her the next day
escaping from a tea kettle
wearing an imported brassiere
and six bandaids painted like flowers
she would not tell me about the bandaids
