the resident houses


in the parquet floors you see them resembling

some other personages


obelisks forebode intelligibly insults

to the whole minor parade

whisks around the new motor car

with a lampshade for its bonnet


simply subscribing


out in the hall screaming

the parvenus like bedraggled gray parrots

of an equatorial cult

the seminar-inducted


at the trade docks a rented truck

carts away the scenery by night


new signage by day
