Labor DayCollected Feelings

“A mouth / That’s my career. A membrane sealed

in a cave / unless I bury it in an interested client.” — Carrie Lorig? Nick Sturm? Avocados?

“Like a weird, proud mountain, you deny you’re alone. / & /  The Science are a neat group! Seven hours, two informative CDs, a computer for president. God, he said, is just this thing.” –Tyler Gobble? Layne Ransom? Beer?

*At a certain point education makes you dumb and eats your time to none but a small hum of conversation can happen. These are first notes, beginner’s notes.
