Nonsense Hotlinen

NONSENSE HOTLINE

in Politics/U.S. by

Languishing in the Department of Anguish

Tuesday spins, tipsy on its tilted axis

Trump Stumps in Battleground States

Blessed are the hungry, for they feed truth

Black beans with epazote and beet greens

Dream I cut into the buffet line

Free Leonard Peltier Day

Squatters’ Rights Day

Spoiler Alert vs Trigger Warming

Shelf life of a burning heart

Alphabet soup on afternoon’s mustache

Trap your inner sun, earth links

Fog wraps silver rags around time’s neck

The rest of us surging to bumrush the clock
