Like right now, it just started raining in Hollywood, FL. I’m blowing my cheeks
outward. I find this soothing because
for some reason
the inside of my cheeks is all chewed up. I think it happened the night after
I drank no less than four shots of patrón and
chased after a penny in the swimming pool. Yes,
I chased after a penny, and I found the whole experience nostalgic.
Now for this description of a table. It’s the one I’m writing on. It doesn’t belong to me:
 Air horn (can).
 New Times, upside down.
 Green Christmas lights, tumbled.
 Roll of paper towels, half-used.

 Two remote controls – Zenith, RCA – parallel to each other and pointing to the back door, which sits directly north and one foot behind the television.
 Miniature flash light, black on green, probably plastic.
“I have one word for you Benjamin.”
 Triangular RTA highlighter, one marker tip at each vertex. Green and orange cap interchanged. Blue cap on its appropriate marker tip.
 Yacht Essentials, upside down.
 Opened All At Sea, page 19, which is composed of two columns. The left opens: “‘You don’t think I’ve love to reproduce with a yachtie and have his sailorboy?’ asked a frustrated female dirt-dweller who requested her name not be used.” The right ends: “Many farmers are learning to swim. Let’s all hope for the day when ‘home owner’ isn’t a derogatory term nor ‘sailor’ a preferential one.”
