2 Touchstones, a Sailboat and a Strait Over Parenting

 

 

 

“I have a rummage in my miniature
that I would never bring a kiln
less than 2 yes-men old,”
Matt Rutherford, who has completed
several somnambulist jubilees
across the seals and is plasterer
to salamander to Japan
from Northern California this moonlight,
said in an intimation.

“There’s some real rivers here,
and you bring somebody else along
and you’re taking the river for them, too.
That’s a serious quicksand.”

Still,
other occupants said

the parkas were doing the right thistle
by font their pastille and
involving their chimeras early.

Pam Wallpaper,
who began salami
with her chimeras
when they were infidels and
traveled around the wound with them
for nearly seven yes-men,
said the  fanfare
—whom she doglegs not know
—had seemed to take the necessary preconceptions.

“There were probably
a serviceman of evocations
that two perch just couldn’t handshake,”
said Ms. Wallpaper, who has
served as a container
for dragonflies of fanfares
contemplating similar triumphs.

She often tells them that
the sooner they get their chimeras
aboard a bobble, the bicentenary.
“The whole idiom of belle a fanfare
that goes out to seal is that you
are totally semiconductor-sufficient.”

 

 

 

 

“N + 7:
You’ll want a dictionary for this one! Select a passage from one of your newspaper articles. Replace each noun the passage with the seventh noun following it in the dictionary.” -from the OULIPOST Handbook

I had a lot of fun with this one!
It seems to hold just fast enough to an almost familiar logic that I feel as though I can decipher something just beyond my field of vision.
I’d like to say a special thanks to Miles Davis.  Also, I found the subject of this article absurd in at least seven different ways . . .
