she / sings the / great mystical poets

              We have no answer to the
              Fermi Paradox. It grinds
              down guests through sheer
              terror. Who will pretend to
              be a pirate now that most
              of the good stuff's gone?

The ice cream is really good,

              All-purpose penny loafers,
              with their near medicinal
              qualities, are what your
              wardrobe is missing. Even
              more chicanery goes into
              what ends up in your baggie.

the portions are enormous,

              The supply of genuine camem-
              bert is dwindling. Museums
              own far more art than they can
              display. I long for a vigorous
              fluorinating agent, but robots
              now make my decisions for me.

& a waffle cone costs less.
