How are you? How’s Dallas? How’s teaching, writing, acting, directing?
How’s your mom? How’s your love life?
How’s your violin?

How are you? How’s Dallas? How’s teaching
writing — churning directing? How’s Its owner?
How’s your love life? How’s your violin?

The dark of winter. Those are years that made history.
I’ve done it before. All of my kids are adults now. I grew up in an age where the world was divided into races. I grew up with heroes and villains. All my kids had one thing in common – they grew up with love.
=>

The dark of blackened overalls. Those
are then days and nights. I’ve done it
deep. All of my kids are our destination
then. Labor grew up in an age where the world

was divided into this world houses have
won. Landscape crossed up with heroes
and villains. Some strong minds
found one thing original – The story came

out with love.

Use the description of the best class as an early course feedback mechanism. During the second or third week of the course, have students rate the items they listed. For example, if they said, “The teacher respects students”; ask them to rate on a five-point scale how well that’s happening in class so far. You might rate them on some of the student characteristics.
=>

Use the lunch rush of the best class
as a group. During the second, or harder,
week of bellies that growl and burst
have as your sign a storm they listed.

For example — if they found a door
respects ownership; Ask the yard to rate
the bosses on deep blues. Civility might rate
them on some of the student characteristics.

What are you most proud of accomplishing?
Write about a time when your best friend surprised you.
What qualities make someone a good listener? Why? Are you a good listener?
What was your most embarrassing moment? Why?
=>

What, are kudzu just proud of surfacing?
Write about a time when a straw militia
man surprised you. What qualities
make someone the skunk that found
your path and whirled? Deeply feral.
Are you a common listener? What saw
your mind, nevertheless clean?

The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion. Evidence ofRussian government operations began to surface in mid-2016. In June, the Democratic National Committee and its cyber response team publicly announced that Russian hackers had compromised its computer network. Releases of hacked materials-hacks that public reporting soon attributed to the Russian government-began that same month. Additional releases followed in July through the organization WikiLeaks, with further releases in October and November.

A storm made– in the 2016 asleep election,

Releases of –hacked, the common image–

Saturday will be mostly cloudy with patchy fog in the morning before becoming partly cloudy. Highs will be in the 50s to the upper 60s. Southwest winds will be 10 to 20 mph.

Saturday night will be mostly cloudy with lows in the lower 50s. Southwest winds will be 10 to 20 mph.
=>

Saturday will be mostly different with friends
in the morning before becoming mostly desperate.
Each morning will be in the 50s to a family
plot. Pride will be Dust. Saturday

night will be also heedless with houses
that were not built to last in the small 50s.
The white and old fields will be this world.

You mean the Stock Market hit an all-time record high today and they’re actually talking impeachment!? Will I ever be given credit for anything by the Fake News Media or Radical Liberal Dems? NO COLLUSION!
=>

Lights mean the Stock Market hit the
downtown strip shooting today and they’re

actually glinting our destination.
Will I ever be given credit for blood

by the Fake News Media or Radical
Liberal Dems? What, sometimes?

2018-09-27 00:07:03.    Zombie Trump on Zombie George: The Press Conference!

Just so you understand. And he may have had a bad past, who knows, you know? He may have had some—I think accusations made. Didn’t he have a couple of things in his past?
=>

Now, so you understand… The regime may have
our deaths. Punishment may have

shown us something — We think the other man’s
made. Did even he have flowers

in his past?

2018-08-26 19:37:26.    Trump Tweets as Zombie Poems: Moving Back!

Our Economy is setting records on virtually every front — Probably the best our country has ever done. Tremendous value created since the Election. The World is respecting us again! Companies are moving back to the U.S.A.
=>

Our Economy is setting your youth
on roofs and gins that collapse
on the way. Probably the best my tongue
has ever done. A reflex graveyard

beckons, created since the Election.
The World is burning again! Fences
and poles are moving back to the U.S.A.

Sweet bits of spicy candy
Stretches drifted through
The rabbit squeaks a perfect
m has another stroke

mmmmm

The coloratura of this fantasy
Cassandra’s earlobe drifts down—
The rooster thinks it’s the moon

Like the easel that thinks
The rooster becomes a scythe
Visions begin blank like this

A baby rabbit wrapped in pink
Amniotic fluid so shimmery
A piece of wet candy

I’d give you a hand
But we need this shade
Hush, I’ll never leave

Perhaps all is being augured
That way she—

Looks like a pressed butterfly
Holding a bit of green leaf
Chlorophyll foam stains her teeth
The space around her scaly

We didn’t, look, that way—

Something will
come up
Fingertips sweep
Around her mouth
Alphabetical dust
=>

Fire of your rearview mirror drifted
through. One house squeaks. The levees

has small cannon — The rooster thinks
teacher’s devils like the easel that

thinks things becomes scythe visions.
Begin blank like this, their stories

wrapped in pink amniotic fluid so shimmery.
A piece of shiny and flat sheets I’d give

you, the staff, but we need this shade. Hush.
Vestige’ll straight leave else all is being

augured. The young men she — A new regime
like amazement tensing a bit of a sweet life,

her teeth the space around our holy mother
some part the original work — A match

will come up fingertips, sweep
around my hands.

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.

A spit-shined china dish is supporting
your country all the time and their construction
when it deserves it.

2018-08-14 18:27:12.    Trump Tweets as Zombie Poems: Tears in Her Eyes

Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard….
=>

His hair and beard now had fire for hair.
She never warned morning anymore.

Day arrived. Fire for a job. Orange fire
in her eyes. The harvest happened. Ok.

Each day in the White House burned her.
Leadership was vicious but not smart.

I would rarely see her but swamped…

2018-08-02 13:31:30.    Monstera

Skim rote letters
off glassy water.
These paraplegic praises,
half of what
I could be,
up to the hilt
in lake weeds.

Amplified at surface
level, a body
treads below us,
addressing your saviour,
with my sins:
Medicine ball: Machina.
Salt lamp: Aurora.
Tyrannosaurus rex: Anima.
Doughnut holes: Manga.
Automatic flash: Camera.
On the dock
of the Archipelago:
Monstera.
=>

Skim rote letters off your trip.
These paraplegic praises, half
of what I could be up to — wings in lake
weeds. Amplified at surface level,
fine gifts treads below us — slowing
the others with my sins: Yourselves
Sweet blues. Iron Movement. Jars
Anima. A spot miles — What — perhaps? Nothing.
Someone’s on the dock of the Archipelago:
Fences and poles.

Happy Fourth of July..Our Country is doing GREAT!.

Hard bright of July. The glass dream
is flashing. GREAT!

I interviewed 4 very impressive people yesterday. On Monday I will be announcing my decision for Justice of the United States Supreme Court!
=>

I interviewed small piles yesterday.
On Monday I will be keeping tyranny
for the cats of the United States
Supreme Court!

2018-06-26 17:02:10.    Trump Tweets as Zombie Poems: Play Fair!

….We are getting other countries to reduce and eliminate tariffs and trade barriers that have been unfairly used for years against our farmers, workers and companies. We are opening up closed markets and expanding our footprint. They must play fair or they will pay tariffs!


=>

…We are standing walls to reduce
and eliminate your friend. We are revving
up closed markets and proclaiming a zombie
life. Empire must play fair or innocence will pay

with a guillotine!

2018-06-16 18:09:44.    Zombie Title

Friends, I am checking out for a while. For some time, I have felt I have reached a real end with my own writing. For better or worse, I feel like I have done what I can do and am eager to try a quieter pursuit.
=>

Friends I am sleeping out for sunlight.
For some time I have felt I have reached

a real end with hunger. For better or small I feel
like I have done what sorrow can do and am eager

to try fantasies for which you had trained.

2018-06-07 14:37:09.    Trump Tweets as Zombie Poems: Beyond the Pale

…This is a level of criminality beyond the pale. This is such a grave abuse of power and authority, it’s like nothing else we’ve seen in our history. This makes the Nixon Watergate burglary look like keystone cop stuff
=>

…This is the long and open road of criminality.
Beyond a small graveyard beckons. This is shifty.
A grave abuse of this road when stones were younger.
It’s like no one we’ve seen in grief. This makes the fair countryside

look like the cost

2018-05-20 21:10:36.    Trump Tweets as Zombie Poems: Oh’ Great!

The Witch Hunt finds no Collusion with Russia — so now they’re looking at the rest of the World. Oh’ great!
=>

The man finds our sign — that square of blue that
pales the sky with Russia. Rarely now they’re

looking at this foot stone of the World.
Oh’ quiet!

2018-05-18 15:35:19.    Trump Tweets as Zombie Poems: All Time Biggest

Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a “hot” Fake News story. If true – all time biggest political scandal!
=>

Reports are: there was just the light. It took the front
here early on, and nimbly, before the younger Russia
Hoax brought a “gray” Fake News the hard darkness.
If true – Our quickness is a song!
