Mark Young - five prose pieces

1. Regional funding for genital mutilation is up in the air

Police are reaching out to American leaders after sagging profits in Sydney's Redfern forced them to cut 20,000 of the strategic popes who mock organized religion & monitor common law breaches of the peace. The State Government has enjoyed a slight uptick in sales in recent months as it worked hard to get more shoppers, like almost all who made aliya, to retain their citizenship & the right to chop people up with their machinery. A key part of the fragile chinaware of which the millers of Coketown were made is unknown in the West. Considering the political choices he often faced, sometimes he’d rather suck on the tailpipe of an idling car than be enticed into the worship of longer shopping hours, even when accompanied by better-trained staff & better merchandise. Ostensibly, the riot was brought on by laboring children giving large payouts to people nearing retirement age.

2. The Pillow Book of Kim Kardashian

As soon as a man comes to a lady-in-waiting & demands to receive food she sees it as a permanent relationship, which to Kim Kardashian is inappropriate. On the other hand, she is upset about a man who makes a “helpless Court lady” pregnant without doing any future arrangements to support her. She is even speaking of the man as the one who is seducing the lady &, therefore, clearly victimizes women. As well, Kim Kardashian can’t bear a man who pretends to like a woman when it is quite clear that he doesn’t, since she relies on his words. She gives different behavior codes for men & women though; if a couple splits up, it suits the man to show to the woman that he is sorry, while the woman can show him the cold shoulder without being called heartless in her opinion. Overall, Kim Kardashian describes secret romances with men as very pleasant. She describes her excitement when expecting a visitor, & notes the sentimental importance of letters of former lovers, & even mentions the summer time as her favourite season for having an affair. This demonstrates how important relationships between men & women in the daily court life are to her. But in their interaction, even in the most intimate relationship, she demands a form of etiquette to provide security & support the idea of romance.

Furthermore, she points out inappropriate behaviour of men in general: “I hate the sight of men in their cups who shout, poke their fingers in their mouth, stroke their beards, & pass the wine to their neighbors with great cries of ‘Have some more! Drink up!’” Even though she dislikes graceless & uncontrolled behaviour, she also doesn’t appreciate men who try too hard to fit into the court etiquette. In her opinion, to truly be a gentlemen, an elder man should share his wealth with younger men. Moreover, regarding women, they should always make sure to offer favors in a comfortable way, for example by providing a carriage with well behaved attendants. Kim Kardashian acknowledges different ways of speaking in The speech of men & of women, & thereby points out gender differences. She presents herself as well aware of both her power as a female in the Imperial court & her influence on men.

3. South Korea recommences harpoon whaling

Sapporo Agricultural College (later Hokkaido University to enroll as two of Kise). Was appointed in the contract one year as vice principal (the principal on the facts), the "ambitious Boy, you'll" when founded Agricultural College Quotations famous William Clark Dr. is already the United States has returned to, Kise two of our Nitobe & the difference was put. Nitobe, as well as our grandfather, was quite hot in the Han firmness. One day, the school cafeteria poster is affixed to the "right person, immediately shall pay the tuition fees in arrears per Kakyu" as was the name of the Nitobe. Shouted "What accumulate as determined by the piece of paper this way of life" I Inazo at that time, even before the public attention, would tore the paper, but be hunted down to the brink of expulsion, desperate friends somehow spared by the plea withdrawal. Besides, Professor (active = activists say, now, "Akuchibu" may also come to blows hot & controversy have become terrorist implications of that also) nickname was attached.

Clark "for a Kise ethics as teaching the " Bible taken, almost everyone is under the influence Kise a Christian has to believe in. Kise also two, began to sign a "pledge of those believe in Jesus" began to believe in love in succession to the total attack "evangelize" Kise one of our early admission, Clark each person had left. Interested in Christianity from the front entrance Agricultural College, Nitobe was brought to the English version of my Bible signed immediately, at a later date, the synchronization Kanzo Uchimura (religious), Kingo Miyabe (botanist), Isamu Hiroi (Civil system with these missionaries Mezojisuto) technician, was stationed in Hakodate MC Harrisfrom baptism received. Impressed to Christianity at this time, devoted to the Christian go. When fights occur at school, "Christ or into the arbitration & said you should not have fought ", bestow read the Bible more important than that" also be called. the Bible is truth to join the discussion from his friends began to turn into a human body without a Bible & enjoy reading a Nitsuka such as "has been written, & is also similar to the original entrance. At that time, nicknamed "Monk ( monk decided to be nicknamed after thinking variously) "in, & the like Kanzo Uchimura of friends" in this Akuchibu I do not say that the guy "&.

4. Mexico court rejects Lopez Obrador election appeal

The more the former governor gave himself up to the widespread use of sophisticated, off-the-shelf computer espionage software under an arcane Roman-Dutch common purpose law used under the apartheid regime, the more it seemed a deliberate effort to humanize a candidate often accused of being cold & formal. Never had he seemed so disagreeable, to have such stodgy fingers, such vulgar ways. His purported tenderness, in fact, diminished each day as the repulsion for his husband grew. There was never enough cold-cream for his skin nor patchouli for his handkerchiefs. It could be a defining moment.

What made the software especially sophisticated was how well it avoided detection. Only a flagrant abuse of the criminal justice system would work to unify a divided country that believed Nature had not existed before, or had only begun to be beautiful since the gratification of their desires. It doesn't take 270 miners who have been charged with the murders of 34 striking colleagues who were shot by South African police officers to tell us what America needs. What is needed in our country today is not complicated or profound, just fried smelts, cream & cherries.

5 Labor / bounces back / in latest Newspoll

I knew a frustrated neo-Nazi who was born an orator but had never read Cicero, & was therefore never able to answer this argument of who first made the observation that there was great inconstancy in our air & climate? The British colonists took organized sport & racist white-power bands to the antipodes in the late 18th century, & the rivalry between the elements of Logick & Rhetorick in the Old World dropped five degrees overnight. It was hazardous despite the great distance. In either case, authorities say the civil rights organization is being treated as a child for at least a century & a half, & that the new store-house of original materials remains copious & piquant. They haven't yet had it diagnosed as hypothermia.

Darrell Petska - Post-Postmodern Pensées

I. Before Sleep

A disciplined knife can open a word, just one slit freeing worlds that unfold like an endless ant parade. Can we split a tear without drawing blood? The slightest sliver of tear can pierce the throbbing hive of a heart, freeing a swarm of sensibilities, virtual heart-seeking missiles to zero on him or her or them asleep beside us. Words, tears, hearts—This may sting a bit, we say, aware there must be weeping if we are to get any sleep.

II. A Tip

Confusion rides our genes like the weather: bewildered born, bewildered dying. Congresses on clarification assemble from east to west while soft southerly winds wipe our brains clean. So let us laugh. The bugs are watching, looking for an in. Even one word written large can be therapeutic, though knowing the dictionary backward and forward does not ensure sound sleep. Lying with one's head to the north helps.

III. On The Human Experience

Silence is the greatest eloquence, the dead saying more than the living. An empty page can capture the entire human experience. Every claim we make is suspect, every assumption riddled by moths. Next year, the Nobel Prize in Literature will go to the gilded mime in Prague Square. Narrow-mindedness garners but self-acclaim: such boats lack ballast. Though poets and philosophers run fools' errands, inaction offers little but rust.

IV. Always, The Laughter

Animal magnetism generates our species. No one is immune, though not everyone fattens at that trough. The breadth of one's reach is crucial. A long nose often points the way. Discouragement is not subtle: step aside, you fainthearted. Science is sound but will is weak. The resulting heredity is a lottery. In the end we are babes in les bois to believe we know our heart's true desires. Hear, in the wings, Mozart's soundless laughter.

V. With a Chance of Rain

Birds get high on the seeds of discipline. And what do our dexterous hands tend to sow? Spinach, which is why our children renounce us. All too soon, they figure things out and declare their playgrounds puerile. To combat time-spatial drift, we become so deliberate that our lives can be forecast like the weather. Birds build their castles. We queue like lemmings and bemoan our indigestion—as close to will as we can come.

VI. Consider the Pansy

What has the pansy to say for itself with such bluster in the world? Post-postmodern dogs and cats feel compelled to remark on every moment—gone the days of scratch and sniff and ye shall know. Maxims are too abstruse for the football generation. A few lines of discourse roam the city seeking a room, but the inns are full of advertisements. The pansy feels no compunctions, its smile in face of nature's pejoratives truly remarkable.

Christopher Barnes - Liberty Atoms

Liberty Atoms 1
Sun defaults at climb.
Winged viper hulks
In nipping twitchgrass
To Maisie’s prompt.
Her teardrops firm up no lifeline.
Stencilled on boiled egg:
“One night – this time –
You do understand”.

Liberty Atoms 2
Pea-pods in Belleek ware –
Only tide-sniffed coal.
Maisie’s fingertips bled.
Our kitchen tightened as she wittered
A jinxed dirge.
On a bus ticket:
“I would like to see you
To talk about my brother’s death”.

Liberty Atoms 3
Emery-rough towel…strewn
Maisie gnashes carbolic
Howl-storying into evaporation.
This instant’s quarrel peeps
Through the ghosts’ no-matter wishes.
Copied onto a synthetic eyelash:
“He’s just an external impulse,
A sort of jolt, a solid entity”.

Liberty Atoms 4
Damask chiffon scarf
Muzzled the handset obstinately.
Our toadlet flopped
Into peeling door.
Maisie imagined numbers,
Glaring at fallow A4.
Zeros bevelled.
On neat velvet
Confidence-trick diamonds pushed into:
“Edward has been disappointed
And a little hurt”.

Liberty Atoms 5
Boulder-snaplink choker
Would not be donned.
Gala day scrapped.
Amelia whomped Maisie,
Floundering oysters.
Cloud ruptured –
In glazed shoreline:
“Do you imagine that you can save the world
Simply by proving that it is possible?”
