Incidents


FAIR WARNING
Miniature ponies don't make me angry so much as disappointed.


SCIENCE
Scientists say distance from earth to moon is 238,855 miles—but what's your opinion?


TIME
Since the beginning of time, man has yearned to hold hands with a cat.


NOTE
A vegan is much more afraid of you than you are of him.


JOE AND MOE IN “WORD WITH FRIEND”
JOE: Moe, a word?
MOE: How about delicatessen?
JOE: That's a great word.


ABOUT WOMEN
I treat objects as women.


LITERARY NOTES
Few books leave a deeper impression on readers young and old than Donna Tartt’s classic The Goldfinch. Interestingly, the novel is an extensive reworking of Tartt’s original draft, which was entitled The Drinking Fountain.


EVER HEARD OF HAIKU –or- 俳句 ?
Under the image of Buddha
all this overdyed chambray
seems a little tiresome.


SOMEDAY
Maybe one day we’ll tip our hats to Count Chocula, not out of fear, but out of friendliness.


CHAPTER 4
God, with two double bourbons inside him, sat in the final departure lounge of Miami Airport and thought about life and death. (To be continued.)

Mike Topp lives in New York City unless he has died or moved. He is working on a book called CRAZY HEARTS with the poet Sparrow.
