Nightcap 12/01/12

Big ol' troughs of cauliflower juice. Laid out on the floor. Bring em up with a gentle heat, right up to the edge of boil. Then cut it off. Nothing. Let it go cold. Now start snapping pictures. Landscape orientation, maybe portrait. These memories last a lifetime. Keep em safe from the flood by sleeping with them clutched to your chest. Not just the trough photos, though we both know their special value, but whole albums full of pictures of all kinds of juices. Cactus juice. Lemon juice. Mercedes Benz juice. All these juices poured out into troughs and let sit for years on the carpet floor. Take a guess which ones form a thick skin on top. Make a game out of it. Bring the family together. This is what you told the judge you wanted. Said it would be enough. All else is forgiven. Just want the family back. Well here we are. God's own children, locked forever in his mystery, holding hands, standing in honor, staring down at big metal troughs full of cauliflower juice that sits nice and still for our camera lens, documenting our time here in each other's company. No going back cause nobody wants to.

NIGHTCAP 08/04/11

The Centerline Laundromat vanished today. The whole building, its machines, chairs, windows, pipes, everything disappeared into thin air this afternoon. People’s spinning, still wet clothing flung out in every direction. Freshly washed, clean socks tumbled onto the dirt as carts disappeared. The one-eyed man who always sleeps near the door fell over and sprained his hip when the soap-machine suddenly wasn’t there to prop him up any more. Turns out the guy speaks only Portuguese. As of 11:30pm there’s no sign of the building returning and less of an explanation as to why the laundromat disappeared while the tangled-cat factory across the street remained. Authorities say that people in that part of the city will stink more than usual due to forced wearing of soiled undergarments for at least the next two weeks.
