the market tables will never stay overturned neither do the fishing boats remain at the dock one by one, provocations are forgotten the prophet recast as attacker...disturber...malcontent fierce resistance gives way to same-old, same-old the canvas that sells is the pretty one while the absurd and ugly markings are less desired than a cactus at a birthday party the telephone rings and busyness commences double shots of espresso are ordered my bank account is automatically debited I complain about the heat of the liquid in my paper cup
This was an exercise in taking twelve completely random words and finding a thread to connect them. I used them, one word per line, in the order that I originally wrote them down.
- market, dock, one, attacker
- fierce, canvas, absurd, cactus
- telephone, double, account, heat
