Mall Hell

Underneath the noisy

terrible music and awful

nourishment scents of

a shopping center

is something more regrettable.

the sound you would

hear I child you not

noisy thought telecast

from the whole crowd's

heads yelling

I need I need I need.

The uproarious awful music

furthermore awful nourishment smells

are just a hindrance

like earplugs to square

the musings of longing

that shout from individuals'

heads in shopping centers


This was found

in a New Jersey shopping center

Paramus I accept

amid the well known

shopping center force blackout

of August 1993.

As everybody stood

in shocked quiet

not able to shop

there could be listened

an ear-shattering

serenade of

its never enough

A mouse is a pointing device that functions by detecting two-dimensional motion relative to its supporting surface. Physically, a mouse consists of an object held under one of the user's hands, with one or more buttons.

The mouse sometimes features other elements, such as "wheels", which allow the user to perform various system-dependent operations, or extra buttons or features that can add more control or dimensional input. The mouse's motion typically translates into the motion of a pointer on a display, which allows for fine control of a graphical user interface.

The Secret Key to Poetry

Poetry is a brick wall with a door that must be drawn in poetry chalk
The key to the door must be carved from the spine of a Stegosaurus
Secret handshakes and passwords are passed along in dreams
Dance steps required to enter: tango, hip-hop, waltz, ballet, belly dance, and the Sufi spin
In that order
Musical meters are a must: syncopation, adagio, saxophone improvisations, and country western
Mandatory forays into Virulent Villanelles, Shyster Sestinas, and Non-Returnable Nonnets. Eco-Haiku and High-Strung Haibun will not do.
Should you fulfill these requirements you may stand on line at the door. Yes that line. The one drawn in chalk.
