Home Stretch Friday

On each occasion when this one reality would begin to bring its creation into the home stretch, some of the horses would begin to yawn, some would put on weight, and others would start staring even more intently at the world beneath their feet.


What men call “conscience”
is the instinctive drive for
a certain chemical balance.


For reasons yet unclear,
this one reality has announced
its “business hours.”


One absolute monarch, just to go ahead and get it over with, had his Official Describer describe him as, “Strong, though unfair; regal, yet quite vain; sophisticated while still a Philistine, and judicious with no mercy at all.”  (It was good to get THAT little business outta da way.)
