P.S. Pardon my temporary dive into the avant garde. This is the rearranged and deranged text message racket I’ve recently received from a local news station as “Breaking News.” These collage pieces don’t work well for most people, but they are fun for tinkering. Some of you may recognize the last line and a half as inspiration for another piece. Really, all of these little ditties could be the start of tragic, perhaps glorious, short stories if one were diligent and crafty enough.

Modern day found objects of sorts. I was think’n the ‘whole’ if you put some panche to it, when spoken out loud came off lyrical – somewhere between Marianne Faithfull’s (Broken English era and Lady Gaga-ish). Sorry the air condition has been broken, think my brain is still a tad over heated.

I recognized the last line 🙂 taken as a whole, it is very “stream of conscious” in a breaking news way. Illustrates how fractured and ADD even our new is.
