i'm sick, so sick of it all, sick "to the back teeth", to the uvula, that little bulb that, once irked, gags. so sick i want to smack the teeth out of you. most of you. i wonder if blue jays find themselves suddenly, or just progressively, filled with shame at the actions of their co-jays. if not, i want to be a blue jay. in this world, in our age, watching this news unfurl, and well, all of it, it seems more human to be a lesser animal.
