"I want to drive
home in the dusk
of some late afternoon
The journey slow:
tractors spilling hay
the land immense and bright, like memory"
Burnside, A Private Life -
as seen on "Poems on the Underground"
Feeling 'homesick'. Not really for the home or the
family life, but for the options that living in a healthy environment
brings. Living somewhere where you can sit in a field and watch
cows chew mushrooms all day takes young people away from the sociopolitical
shit most kids around here grow up with.
Then again, perhaps it's a good thing kids
don't get that chance - imagine the social lemon they'd be when
they hit 'real life'...
Who won the election? Ask
what I'm talking about...
Not the Essendon
I was thinking of either...
WANT TO GIVE ME A JOB?
I need 50 days holiday a year (but can survive with good watering
and strong sunshine on half that amount).

"It must be reiterated that, among the domesticated
primates of Terra at this time, what they sonorously called the
- Supreme - Virtue - of - not - poking - one's - nose - into -
the - affairs - of - the - authorities was still universally esteemed
as the very pivot and fountainhead of what was, among them, known
as living - in - accord - with - the - Divine - Plan - as - revealed
- to - us - in - church - on - Sundays. Basic epistemological
and ontological questions were never raised in 'polite society',
that is, among those described by Galactic Intelligence as so-objectively
- hopeless-in - their - idiocy - as - to - be - subjectively -
convinced - of - their - own - superiority - to - the - other
- wild - and - domesticated - apes.
This tragic and absurd condition, found on no other planet, however
backward, in the Great Universe, was due entirely to the imprinting
of their nervous systems by what are scientifically described
in the TransGalactic Encyclopedia of Primate Psychology
as chemically - bonded - reflex - arcs - causing - primate - perception
- to - be - limited - to - "realities" - accidentally
- present - at - moments - of - imprint - vulnerability, which
is to say that in most cases, only that which caused adrenaline
secretion was perceived as visible or tangible in their rudimentary
brains. Science had already revealed to them, of course, that
99.99% of the physical universe was invisible to their senses,
but they were not capable of deducing from that that an equal
part of the mental and spiritual universes was also unperceived
by them as they robotically proceeded about their mammalian business
of survival, reproduction, and nurturing their cubs"
hair is so dry, so unmanageable. What's a girl to do? Simply rub
in creamy Ubik hair conditioner. In five days you'll discover
new body in your hair, new glossiness. And Ubik hairspray, used
as directed, is absolutley safe.
"Who wrote this?" one of the QCA men
"God knows," Joe said.
"Is that a joke?"
Joe said, "You mean is the note a joke, or what I said in
answer to your question in saying 'God knows---'" He broke
off, because one of the QCA men was bringing out a teep rod, a
receptor which would pick up and record his thoughts. "You,"
Joe said, "will see. That it's true."
