i'm on holiday!!!

ryan and i are off to the Pacific Northwest for a week in Twin Peaks ^_^

to keep you joyus while i'm gone, here are some pictures of kitties doing kitty things...

such as...
enjoying Polar Cave ice cream with the family...

watching birdies...

making their eyes glow in a kind of spooky manner...

mastering the nuances of gravity...

eating socks...

and sleeping in boxes...

but most importantly of all...
not getting exterminated by the daleks...

ray is eighty-four years old
and today, he quit smoking
because he doesn't like the taste anymore

the vibrations of her love song
against his hungry lips
her swollen tonsils against his cool cheek

her song moves him

the white plains

you are a japanese green-tea beetle
and you're trapped between an expanse
of white, smooth paper
and the green-head flies buzzing
at the screen door
at the back of the used-book store on main street.

the store rumbles.

the train horn blows a violent kind of warning
and an inch worm no bigger
than your right antenna
falls from the sky,
joining your expansive white journey
to the door before closing.

a barren field
yields new residue

under the yellow sky
of mid july


we feign weight
as floating, laughing
above the grass

above the locusts
in their ill-formed
chewing clouds

and hatching.

hello, blue man?

will you be my blue man,
my tea cup in capital letters?

in my dream last night
i fought off killer ants
and the rot of a century
with my bare hands

tonight, you can help.
