certain visible emotions. by Mark Young, but first baseball cadavers.

Law school is difficult, is
the epitome of luxury

living. One might think
evil never happens. A huge,

relatively private beach
where deck chairs line the

strand. The weather starting
to warm the one-of-a-kind

nightlife. A small town
in Canada leads the way.



certain visible emotions
He was emotional in
Kansas. Not as much as
he had been elsewhere,
but bad enough. Fort-
unately he had pre-paid
for the tears which meant
his wages wouldn't be
docked this month. Do-

nuts abounded, but the
cradles were empty. He
set them to rocking. The
undiluted elephant in
the next room raised its
trunk & trumpeted Ernst
at him. Life was much
simpler in the Celebes.
