“Thirteen Hiccups (That Refused to Rule the World)” by Richard F. Yates

The ceiling was drooping, perhaps from the pressures of… Spider-like, the community scuttled about producing potholes and listening to vibrations and echoes.

“Danger! Poetry!” by Richard F. Yates

Today—illness is upon me, which naturally made me think of POETRY! I am an admirer of the bardic arts, but I have a special place in my black-hole of a heart for the Dadaists—serial abusers of sound and meaning, whose experiments always amuse me.
