Issue 14
Polka Dots

Acres of daisies and the poor Merz boy
whose face is a patchwork of acne. Dance
steps & blind dates & checkers & inmates:
an extrapolation of a small population.
The predictable pattern replicated in games
(battleship sunk – L4 to L8). Tic tac toe
planet. The town planner’s idea of what
is democratic. One swallow does not make
a summer – most days it’s one damn thing
after another. Hi, my name’s Peg and I’ll be
your server. Wow, it’s crowded tonight.
Are you ready to order?
