May 27       ROUSs       Time passes, I clock it and count it and use its passage to construct a defense or accusation depending on my need.  I use the calendar to condemn you because my feelings do not have sufficient leverage for my mental calculations.  To...

  May 21       NaCl     I work arithmetic instead of telling you to stop.  I make a light remark, never take a stand until I have worked the numbers and believe that the weight of suffering is on my side.  I store in the cellar the salt I found in my wounds...

  April 24       More Better     When I take a break from my idyllic life, trading up to paradise, I balk at thoughts of returning to the simply marvelous day to day I have worked so hard to attain.  Self accusation floods under the door, but I whimilate it with...
