No one pretends as hard as God
None that are allowed, but
there's a terrific park on saturdays
in darker greens and white ash
the water fountains contain coins from Rome
tossed from the passing hands
(sound has memory too)
a hand is draped along the rings
when you repeat a circle in these oceans
you spend the tides
and water wins the world Read below the fold...
Idiot media has (however inadequately and infrequently) reported every time the "number of appointments at the White House by Jack Abramoff or his employees" has changed, invariably upwards.

Say it with me, kids: "Foley is a gay pedophile.
There's been a lot of chatter since this whole mess broke out about how important it is for people not to smear gays with the pedophilia brush. Normally, I'd be the first in that line.
