one word ticker tape: sway

pass it
the butter

the valentine buttery


goddess sway

this savvy day

fulcrum fest

of nestiness

sublime re-reels

asteroid bliss

the now & then

of titillation -

mr pencil has moved

to 1000 N. Main -

not the news

we were expecting

just the news

we crave, drawing

conclusions &

everything else

that winds,


cooling the blood


the visceral



the plummy prime

the stop on

a dime the



sex & candy

roller coasting

Mr. Pencil???

This one is fun. I read it this morning and chuckled, read it again and its rhythms and jive picked up my spirits. Truly a plum for Chinese New Year and a big heart for Valentine's Day. All the best to you and Tina tomorrow and for the rest of the Year of the Tiger!

Teresa: Re: Mr P, I know, not exactly the most titillating image for V-day, but that "line" had been stuck in my head for about two weeks, ever since I saw the sign on McCullough Avenue that "Mr. Pencil has moved to 1000 N. Main." Funky little handmade sign on the street. When I first saw the original Mr. Pencil sign a couple of years ago, I had to write about it then, too. Besides, Mr P helps with drawing conclusions, dontcha know...

Happy Tiger back atcha!

Teresa: You'll find the first mention of Mr. Pencil Supply Company at this link: I forgot to mention the rather sadly drawn pencil that serves as logo for MPSC: cousin, methinks, to Planters' Mr. Peanut.

Aaah. And now things become a bit clearer. It is the pencil used to address the valentine, not a phallic reference. I see.
