Unlike A Barrier

The handwritten scale of the biggest action,
covering your building and washing your walls,
hoping to block the streets of irony,

to call or keep that hoping canyon
where a dozen whistles fall; where slow coughs chanted
in a marriage of signs and sneezes.

Meanwhile in 10,000 streets, fans waiting to be waved,
the long springs triggered from palm to hands;
people will be patient eventually.

You can’t kill those off—the movies, that is—their explosive

innovative destruction innocuous as a family conspiracy
on loan from a Stiller flick. The formula (for the robots’
holy war, that is): tough-minded men plotting to bomb

New York, to launch the United States’ salvation
on the Hudson River. It’s old hat, but this new take is

In every war, some torture is ceremonial.
What a gal! that Jordan. Our enemies abide.

his wooden summers wore on a long-hand bench.

Often misdiagnosed, that mash of music cues
which carries faces, which seems to smile for cameras
and probably smiled for psychologists as well.

The unbowed, unspoken, and nonmusical weeks,

to the great marketplace, which makes up names.

Swearing Injuries Possible

Sure, it's possible, the research suggests (more or less),
for E. and O. to have swearing injuries. "These fractures
of the brain have mysterious patterns," a spokeswoman

says. "One overnight observation confirmed that women
airplane passengers suffered the violence 20% more
than the 'Lost' stars or Edward Kennedy. Fractures

of the cheekbones and eye sockets released more fractures
under the brain, events that tend to cause swearing." Women
victims of plastic surgery fatigue from the strangeness less.

Pregnancy engagement falling

Among the important issues raised by the pregnancy of Oregonian Thomas Beatie is whether a female-to-male transgender person who becomes pregnant might be endangering the fetus, especially someone like Beatie, who has been taking testosterone for at least 10 years. There's very little research on the subject to date, and some experts are at odds about it. Any possible damage done by 10 years of testosterone would be irreversible, he said.

Jamie Lynn Spears amped up her own engagement rumors Tuesday by showing off a sparkly rock during a Kentwood, La., coffee run. Of course, if it is an engagement ring, she's wearing it on the wrong hand. But those Spears sisters always have done things...uh, a little differently.

"It was like any other night," Raul Navaira, 40, said Wednesday.

Except it wasn't.
