My cellphone is a sumppump
I dream of having a brain in the Berkshires
with a wooden Indian burning stove, and a mess
of creationists to practice good conversation,
an interesting part time nervous system, sorry
I meant part time chevy nova, good food if not, books
about venous encounters, navigable music in place of bones.
(Where did that little fainting ecstasy come from?
I don't know my own middle table, but the spunk of it is a live
incinerator in my life already. it came with a splinted cock.)
What I’m donating withers my lifeforce
I’m doing something with it, mining, I'm the mom
of a spit resisting agent, host a daily repossession fair
and my self mounts me like a crawling frame, rehearsing
crevice damages in my free time. I work
in NYC as a universal entity. I am no more academic,
nor landed a psychoanalytic candidate than, say, Veejer.
in view of the flood I’m keeping balanced, dousing menial works
in fluid and obfuscating distasteful manuscripts by thumblight, having
never had time to be an entire outdoors, I spend my sleeping hours travelling
over the river of friends and unmet family. I'm an invention but do not
judge me for it. Also a ravenous cook and sexually so-so, I am
unusually skilled at de-planeting, locating the nexus, and re-converting coal.
I’m a regional ally of the dog of Doris Woodlawn
I’m a god at plaiting wigs. Parity is very big with me. Big projections
on small walls trip my connection. (not so a hard un-packing, though)
I keep a cool head under pressure. I chip away at it during hot spells.
So chirping until it listens.
Scoring big goals despite two bum wings.
Being opened as a tin.
Finality is to thirst as this gong is to a laboratory
I'm you with the thimble shaped cigarette
birth marks removed. Or are they cartoon
wolves protecting my she cave from marauders
on nights when the majorette has group?
Don’t you wish you cared enough to know?
I’m not looking for anything you
can stable. I court oblivion but only insofar
as it secretly means immortality.
Observation is my ass as a magnanimous
gesture, refines me by association.
I love to quote the damned, i.e. “The damned
don't really know what the hell
is thinking.” A knowledge of grasses
my ass has touched, a pulse point.
My Blessed Mary favors the idiot despite saying boo to you, Doofus
My favorite book is the Tall Muds of Progesterone.
My favorite movie is made entirely of twist ties.
I eat Italians.
Rust becomes me.
Imagine a relative American.
My favorite president is Calvin Klein, Samantha owes me a Friday
the 13th, my life these days is increasingly non-fiction!
I can be moved by the poetry of Samuel Taylor Elliott or anything starting with k.
Movies give me girlwood.
Jazz has my unborn inside him. (I also come to some classical)
A glimpse at my deepening itches
a chimp reciting neo-socialist code
interesting friends in me
the knowledge of mean animals
my past elevated to a sport
On a typical Kristallnacht I am…
art and thematic
moving against light
good to eat or ad hominem
having it off with friends
trying toast for the first time
two kids from somewhere
At mosque I blurted my entire videography
Satan threw me a ruby encrusted rat once at recess
to make a point, not very polite...but not entirely unappreciated
I’m looking forward to being your only excuse for…
Guys who are like girls
Ages zero to repeat
A pool near a median
All those who are singing and/or singed
An occurrence for a term to be determined
You should gag me with that mess if…
you want anal with a Mennonite
you want an ingrown off chance
a lungful to breathe you onto frost
and honest bowling that won’t make me exmilitary
a life that betides the nuclear cookies and cream age
one relationship in which we both can grow knobby
and one with no games I can’t win
no superpowers that fall outside the approved list
(posted in the customer service foyer)
an official with a whistle would be a plus
give me enmity, or give me M&M’s, or give me an end I can serialize
my legs hold lots of shiny toys.
Send this to at least six Good Humor veterans.
You will be required to mumble while deprecating.
You’re welcome in advance.
A replica of my splint will be wedded
to your trapeze, provided you have the incoming

Billy knew his Blastopods.
that always impressed me, more
or less, and his thing for the Lepus,
you had to hand him a grudging
respect. areas of limited interest
driving a kind of archeological fervor.
he comes around since dying.
once we were doing something
with ketchup, another time
there were balloons and a vast expanse
of open prairie. he wanted to kill
at least two of my favorite lovers
but called them oddballs instead.
then the time the entire city, Detroit
maybe? was merging with him
like neither was the tumor
of the other. towering spires, sprawling
masses in concrete, steel, glass exo-
structure melded seemingly painlessly
with his shaven head, nearly obscuring
the horseshoe scar.
hard on the parked cars but aesthetically
a rousing triumph of form over fucking
anything. why him? why did he get to grow
whole metroplexes while I direct traffic
on a carless post-apocalypse holiday weekend?
a parking garage in his skull.
everything to scale.
where is my new cranial urban utopia?
aren’t I the situationist here? didn’t he
revel in those cracks like “Today I am a tree!”?
that pose a la Krazy, languid, delirious.
I wrote a poem the year he first walked
into a doorless building. I hadn’t seen him
but he was there (with the ponce retroactively
removed) as follows:
draws me into a cartoon pencil, pipe
cleaner limbs, punishing of joke.
That I laugh withal ejects
me out a panel edge into what,
Peanuts? he liked them, I think?
he’s as night unaware it’s narrating
itself in decorative potted Aztecs.
the moon as carafe, smoke
as a tree. I’m joking, seriously.
No malice in his nature, no sex but what
in suns can never be forced set.
And he’s lone, sketched form, moron
ballets for one, whisper-felt as that buzz
on the hairs in your inner hearing.
it’s a permanently pregnant
chimney, curls in stork flight.
if I can drug myself deep enough
I’ll see standing chromium coaches
brim as the grain of space beneath
a flaming picnic plate on fish wire.
clang once if you know this
is all a fabulous artifaction. gutless
vesper in the next town annexed
by your exoteric drown.
when we pissed off the drunken boy
wonder you knew it would never
get better than that, but might
I’ll develop a plan 10, 11, and on…
keep doing so but they all bust.
brain as undulant gotham?
you squirreled the original plans
in your matter now fusing weirdly
with that rotten tentacled pome.
have better to recall, memory,
than yours truly in lung terror,
here ipso your wise ass as predicted,
laid out single endangered head
on a dream compacting hybrid. concrete
that looks like marble in Canada.
who’s to become now insignifica,
posed as a woondid gezelle?

what you think you’re observing
as a learning trigger, a martini
hour distraction or foreshadowing
potential deathbed riddle is in fact
nothing but a large self-instigating cloud
you could write your name in whose shadows
it both blows into and off you.
just the songs for a staring contest.
a song or a series of songs as interruption.
pardon me ma’am, your desert for one is ready.
no voluntary beast could be as chipper
as you and your stand-in pretend.
possibly get a bob. it worked for Irene Castle.
she had nothing left to apologize for.
those gaps are all vacuums, the bones
elaborate styli. you’ve spilled your umpteenth
breakfast on your Bizzy Buzz-Buzz (registered)
that doesn’t mean you’re necessarily beneath
anyone’s bed in a lurking legs up attitude
or working a deface painting booth at the S&M faire.
the images as described are in the public domain.
you may experience a slight sensation of being
but don’t worry the shitstorm print quality will blunt
you and what appear to be flocks will be redacted,
just scratches where time wanted out
and unquantifiable color artifacts, color
never having been present in the negative.
word to the wise; carry your own gangplank.
he discovers he’s going blind and blames
you, thinking it had said something
about a dream bush or idea tree
at your latest non-local uncle’s wake.
but that light was always coming from
not going to if you’d only remove from your head
the soft box, incubate first then fret
about the strobe replicating your childhood
in meticulously lit and coifed dreads, stealing
all your best chickens and turning them back
into you, peeling, naked as a zoopraxiscope
of nervous layers on collection day.
on the subject of the persistence of relativism,
do not confuse the thaumatrope with your mom
and a man she referred to as Uncle Tonight.
between any two cels there is a no standing zone,
haven’t you noticed how the sailor holds
his ground? Moving Hold (registered) as the people
around you only dress up their presences
so loss intensive, albeit super stylish, to create
a place of tranquility that smells like orange
remind me to tell you how I’ll die, the logistics
are a bitch but the headstone promises to be
delicious if the rain doesn’t melt the legend
before everyone’s had their piece.
the wrist fractures just so, drawn down
by the weight of the spurious concept
of a wrist as a series of choices, strokes
on cue though surely this cannot be a kind
of play? they all believe they are privy to
the victim’s next move, the next crooked stem
from the bouquet.
everything is boneless for a reason.
try breathing through your air.
the crows will confuse and lose
their group think, leaving you
the out you may not actually desire.
I only tell you these things on spec
against a slow first quarter.
tactile heat waves have made your highway
a legitimate blowout risk. this is the tightwire
music walks and yes, sex the same, the fits
are what differentiate us from them.
I’ve been instructed that money matters.
I now recognize that it’s the other way ‘round
and the dormancy of the peak is nothing
to do with the peak at all, but the plates
being loosened just enough by a quality
the trick is in the knowing
how much will be enough to produce
a second date and how much too much
not to avoid annihilation of the entire race
of early circus innovators.
this is one case where it can be argued
obliteration is not it’s own most emergent
industrial byproduct. a civilization is
only as strong as the weaker of the forces
that loses the race to destroy it.
yes, again, you are a delicate flower.
but you cancel nothing that wasn’t worth
moving into the storm’s path in the first place.
you say plump, I say tomato, it takes all kinds
to make a sundae after church.
but the thumbnail of the ghost is growing
too detailed. I had to back away
to regain some sense of forced perspective.
one quits playing the bass as transparent
plea to be begged to play the bass, the other
is writing about Sandy Koufax in an echo
chamber from the early days of sound.
the programs that were left on the seats
were made of cornbread. It rendered their collectible
value nil. but as souvenirs they were sweet.
mine had a large imperfect garnet in it. I was
carried back to mardi gras and the tooth
broken on the baby. these risks are difficult
to accept as commensurate with their rewards.
true, it’s really all just like butter, isn’t it?
like butter you supplant with bleeding first
responder red by cover girl, or vicey versey.
the business about the one fifth of a second
and your multitude of unconventional shoes
and I’m carried back to a time when I knew
a lot more about such things and wasted
so many hours laying down an airstrike
of utterly unutterably enduring genius
before feigning the motions that precede
every word of this is true and not
one not less than a perfection of the cowardly.
I should have told you you were brave
as a newborn under a spark shower
in a foundry gone one hundred percent
automation. I should have stripped you
of all that pleasure, taken you out into
the exercise yard, shown you the aeonium
I grew from seeds from the colon
of a Red Kite, died of natural causes, April 19, 2011.
I should have kissed you or the sound
of your teeth against candy, one, tomorrow
when I still had the chance.

they say he said he was canada’s
angel of death when I saw him
he was wearing black boots and coat
and he had a retarded haircut
the mayor was here she said
in the wake of these tragic events
we will never again be able to take
a retarded haircut for granted
I was sitting in study hall doing
my hair when he came in
the eyes were just empty and he
kept walking shooting almost as if
his haircut were retarded
our teacher ran in then went
out again then came back in
and said there was something
retarded about his haircut
we all started running from
the sound of gunfire and
the retarded way his hair
had been cut and the screaming
there was blood everywhere
you looked and my friend
got shot and I had to drag her
to the salon I heard they found
his web site full of pictures
of guns and knives and
retarded hair and death threats
to the people he thought had
given him a retarded haircut
and when it was over somebody
was dead and probably more
will die in intensive care
and the guy got shot by cops
I caught it on my cell cam but
there was all this blood so you
could only see a little part of
a retarded haircut and they were all
wearing these hats
I want to take a moment to tell you everything
is okay, liars are always polish, I have the list.
fibbing by the way is a word for salvation, oddly
as nuns are all blondes yet it can’t save this one
small unassuming one. she was a part time
bartender with elevatory tone. the limping journey
home of an old shed caller, for whom no special use
is, in this case, in fact, a deciding tilt.
which brings us, of course, to the subject of art.
he’s his own dental dangers animation.
it took him a month the length of a day in central
Florida to arrive at that, not counting the dance
break and, thank god for Tylenol mist,
what appears before you is the result of blue-
ball sciences: a full frontal prototype of plastique
we can take to the carnival. Do some hometown
trading. Not, perhaps, the in-flight subject the artist
whispered about as a possible catastrophe how-to
seminar junket. But collaborative melodrama is,
by nature, smoldering with the power to make you
hungry. The bin into which you plunge with ceramics
replaced in our hearts by the boundless expressiveness
submarine dancers. in the tropics the dancers
are restricted to performing only in the area
of the body. disarray is a game similar to our own
Russian charades. expect to experience a little muscle
soreness. aching is the best thing for it when we talk
of stress and/or names. you might call one one thing
and bet on the other wanting to be called that one
thing instead. it’s a losing battle. teach each to master
the plunger and inhibit any designs on making a life
of it, illinois or otherwise. gurgle when you know they aren’t
awake. odds are stacked heavily in your favor during the trial.
they will both be exonerated, I see it in the cards in my tomb.
you are too round for any other outcome to be possible.
that afternoon the twins threw over commercial reconstruction.
it seemed as if world-beater wreathes were not in the picture.
two days is clearly, for clarity of purpose and sticktoitiveness,
the difficult age. we find aggression an aesthetic manifesting
itself in sometimes subtle forms of waitress mutilation, and in
other cases the carpet bombing becomes a valuable tool.
I work a crane, therefore a crane does not work me. I am,
therefore I crane. accidents are ideal settings for acting out
irrational thoughts of blood loss, bone puncture behaviors.
supplier, meet your new yankee. jack, I was neutered on the x
where you fell out of a sense of the acoustically bungled.
let the tiretrack mew, the best thing to do is a maple-leaf
rag. music can ruin a chest faster than one loaded idea.
a true friend yells to bury your gasping.
things are not as animal as they seem. synonym for amiable.
a worm to the uninformed. none of us down here between tunnels
a10 and a12 are informed on any subject. the rapture of calculating
your rate of undress against the consumption of the fans.
it’s very acute, so a handful of the more resourceful attempt
to mount a production using only the corroded bodies
of paris week survivors as principals. aboveground smoke-
pots, purely symbolic, represent the fact that we all have habits.
averting is the one strategy that might get you through
to the rally in a Dearborn hotel ballroom. Hysteria spreads
like a telepathy. I see the birds with the teeth in my mind.
men and women and the others scramble, frantic, for a sex
partner to end on. The trampled look nice in their new context.
arrangement appears to be some sort of key.
this is not a good time for me.
I only do basic cutwork.
you can get another inch out of me,
but that’ll have to be it. unless you want
another inch. I’ll put you in touch with your material,
but no promises on risk. or how hard it has to be
before the rate structure changes.
the search takes in an expanse of wooded
trees. an area peopled by squeegees, the chills
and a hard-boiled approach to life.
I won’t lie to you about the chances.
I won’t talk to you at all.
this has become a civilized matter and that’s a language
thing, we don’t do those in this department.
gazing lamely, nearly timeless, across the grazed hillside.
it fell right over there, where the zap marks are clearly
manmade. no one factor is to blame. just the fact
of the impregnation, the bewitchment of a whole global skate
park, the flagrant avoidance of insipidity in your statement.
an intrigue encumbered by a chronic slap enveloped
in a standard business-proof envelope concealed
in the antidote case under your seat. the xerox
equipment to read the xeroxes of each thing it took
since rebuilding post-war asthma to gather and collate
no longer exists. none of what was ever put on paper
can be read. we have to turn to space.
they have the compound locked down, subsisting on mice.
call in the negotiator, fit her with an exoskeletal saying.
this one says on.
all the others say bitterly amusing
or wrested from the jaws.
I found sequins on the floor where she had the seizure, kept
some as souvenirs. the bringing together of incoherence
and a flaming mr. coffee is how international taste-makers
are made. I’m only as opulently a sneeze as a bedside clock is
the tact lacked by the intervals.
you’d like a bath now. some freshly harvested poetics
from the garden in the exercise yard. the time to get it
wrong again. what must monsieur broom air be thinking?
he beat the euphonium till it bled stardust. am I blue?
I know an atom when a bomb reminds me of silk bones.
I can drop dead as corny as the next guy.
so at last they pulled the holes out, brought in the big artillery,
the fit of the suits and the feel, a bright new awful soreness,
conviction and seats on the various housetops at parade time,
millions donated tibias and unarmed dolls, the nucleus dwarf
did his skateboard routine to great reviews, a game came out
wherein you pardon the act but fry the families of the witnesses,
an age of wrinkled little black cocktail dresses, the compulsory dick
tracy underarm snubnose law, Jackson became statistically the most
common name to visit dallas at fall color time, the antecedents
were all provided for, the tardy hanged, that whatsis country stopped
being European, pandemonium replaced the unsingable becoming
the new no-sing anthem, mousse the national dessert.
traditionally, rita was still dead of dementia, the rest remained astigmats.
went down to the clinic to have my nerve removed.
started preaching on the merits of a unified stereo theory.

my right hand has been swamped lately.
Indigestion is a fulltime job.
a buck just to fall through the ice at the desert end of the pond.
and this phobia that I might develop a droning in my ears.
this years "capsule is…?" contest has me abstracted.
I don’t know the colors anymore, where they go.
the dark is just another consumer.
and I wrote a letter that impressed me enough to frame it.
but I still pity marriage as an institution without refrains.
The arthritis solo.

I hid the bits in a streak of light in a web dancer
as a humanized commixture, anglo-indian

mistletoe. a whole colony of the disinterested in radio
they’ll have to snowball through. By that time I will have
blushed and pressed the ledge vertical.
hail to the beard of the car-conscious sphincter
of car-ferry mind and rude to plane
as inferior of icefall and overeating to bells
as car as murder weapon is to salamander
this is some nice fabric, glad I ate more

I look at it all objectively in retro

all my ancestors got together and built this

they hang in a dog's memory tree
I sing on personal clinic days of thee leaving
always room for one more eponymous jawbreaker
such a wondrous dialect of impacted mouth noise
and nothing better to castigate or distracting meats
to balance prehistories sugarplums

separate implants then boarded up immediately
I see a pretty lifelike ballerina in glass

thumbnail drip vent for her innermost stillnesses
as yet unserialized a dream land
of newfound sexes in the same chamber curtained
the rarer of two baskets left fully evenly lit
they say there will come a time I believe in receipts
when the cucarachas are the only mimes left
I’ll be a bad call making myself with the masses as witness
to cartoon ass erased by gentrified cliff
the view as window design
putting the haze back one tassel per era
everyone had pyramids and the days off to undermine them
even the poorest bought fresh foreign limits
then had to hold perfectly lifeless for a bulb
taken in by the spurs
none of what’s done by boy choirs is still funny
in dead tongues or is it more wrangler than ever?
gone the way of the grande ballroom the rubberized flirtation
replaced by horse photo park
or just another uncle on another pissing veranda
one wellesian hernia away
your hairdo assuming wallpaper proportions
and naturally electrified areas
gathered an acre of left feet rested in a field of boats
at last we’ll see who wins at porkys revenge
below the doorwalls when I had dueling tonsils
I called it that smear of butter when you’re dead
in the closed next room where anyone knows you
and assumes a net worth
totally as a stranger
trying to make change with his lips
commanding a battalion the size of a second
solid career advice like james’s lane change
deposed the fat broad with zowie rack
the slick shooter on the cornice and mildly comely coed
so if they’re only animated pails that’s the sport it is all
damage scenarios from the eunuch zed theory of stunts
cribs on a page to be sharper than the venom it enhances
he knows his history “you call to mind a herd of negro jockeys
with their pot metal mounts modified – pre-viable
police statistically - in the foretold biblical hail of bits”
unchaste as it appeared from the outer side of jesus’
impregnated duvet and matching spear shams
the verbatim played better
than decorating in hyena as fluid
as a remarkable visitation upon sleeping herders
you are the bespoken
of species long since boned by junk mail invitation
a private audience with gravity sea
crippling vistas but she looks hot shedding her cellar
delivering presalted teeth to a tired bear
magnificent choking dawn drawn on a tissue
for several dozen disinterested motorists
precocious pictures blank upon prolapse
reentry and leaning back into a pollyanna alley
is there something hilarious in your breathing
and how this manages to come off so easily as co-op?
I wonder if you see that and it’s a box and you fold at it
feed the dog all the closure of an open book
the hushed comments of unrepentant birders
formerly purse snatch and lip lock types with coffee and chapeaus
gathered by the ad for a free irreproducible nose
I see in it enough to shore up he puffed
it rhymes with chronic thatch on lofts
the purely bohemian mr. bubble death-dare
a sister having a stare off with no star tent to mark her
standstill premature time is my time and wouldn’t earth get a chill
if I should just blow lightly on this small nude clay
or remain in anyones definition of grinding high speed noise
a composition of masturbating as interpreted
by the spent shellhead collective
now I’m dressed and ruffled by couples
in chronic parking
put your knees between anything with the capacity of the plane
foxholes nice planters and air in soluble cubes
the blank wonder of ceasing to exist yesterday
in the welt a cold hand drawn is as good as a sandwich
especially when it’s suspicious
I looked up the color of the sky
it said “repugnance” “an act of protesting animal rewrites”
and “drugs to carry food”
you’re that screwed up saddle tramp with the ludwigs
and prize wetbacks won at craps
haven’t you got the meanness to function
as the original johnny stems in big forensic feet?
MC a dirty utterance everyone loves
to hate like snow in odessa
I’m carving a bust of you as a precise rectangular ditch
mourning neutrality has impaired my driving
like a house dick on quiet springs
now trainees will set me in the tubes
man the orifice of development and alone time fails
then the bust can be made of a flatter terminal thought
lined the street with linden trees then wiped out
all the bees no moisture left in the entries
parade grounds in cups of rons exotic muds
the generalship of grazing with dealer agenda
in dumb educational noise between network troughs
all crack teams interact well
Tom Korean Restaurant amiably shot at his door
my game console’s reduced me to a single demise
to market to market
I have all these lingoes
and they go ripe
like the fisheye taught by the blowjob to curtsy
when there is no drama as in this conversation
I place my bets from the comfort of a moving symbol
it’s all about the discipline in modes of rest
nine hours a day on stilts to develop a chinlike chin
and cauterize my self starter so the comedy’s intact
then watch the templars bowl for the title
if all bombs are dots
and all dots are duds
dude where’s my car bomb?
connectedness patterns bake easier in the hands
the guy in the trash with his one good legacy
throw the leftovers away for later
I love movies about nature giving fuckers fits
nothing that needs adjustment hems might reflect times
but go away I’m in my altogether in favor
a dose to correct your paradisiac smile
I’m him watching M but he can’t spell
think he’s in the middle of having one of my episodes
he wants my old distortions reinstalled
yet should the phone ring when you hear it and not before
it’s a feeler for you

Astronomers have observed
a giant arrow in space
possibly the biggest arrow ever
seen in the cosmos.
When NASA's ARROW
Space Observatory first spotted it
10 days ago, observers thought
it was a massive arrow
blowing up as a giant arrow
and expected it to fade
within hours or even minutes.
But the high-energy radiation
from the arrow has shown no sign
of dying down, which suggests
that astronomers may have caught
a giant arrow in the process
of being ripped to shreds
by a giant arrow.
The arrow is actually a series
of arrows, like a string
of arrows going off one
"We know of arrows
in our own galaxy
that can produce repeated
arrows, but they are thousands
to millions of times less powerful
than the arrows we are seeing,"
says Giant Arrow of the Space Arrow
Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland.
"This is truly extraordinary."
ARROW's Arrow Alert Telescope
detected the arrow on 28 March.
The Hubble Space Arrow
Telescope took an image of the arrow
on 4 April, which located the arrows
at the center of a giant arrow
3.8 billion light-years away.
On the same day, NASA's Arrow
X-ray Observatory took a picture
of the arrow by pointing at it
for 4 hours.
That image also showed
that the source of the arrows
was at the center of the arrow
imaged by Hubble.
The position of the arrow within
the arrow offered a clue that the arrows
might be associated with a giant arrow,
as nearly all arrows have a giant arrow
in the middle.
"We think that there is a dormant giant
arrow there that has accreted a lump
of arrows—probably a giant arrow
that has fallen into it," says astrophysicist
Giant Arrow, the lead scientist for ARROW
at NASA's Goddard Space Arrow Center
in Greenbelt, Maryland.
What could be going on is the following: A giant arrow
flitting too close to the giant arrow has been grabbed
by its gravitational pull. The arrow's gas has been falling
into the giant arrow, causing enormous amounts of arrows
to be released in the form of high-energy arrows shooting out
like a giant arrow.
Although this is not the first time astronomers have witnessed
a giant arrow being gobbled up by a giant arrow, the arrows
are putting out arrows far greater than previously seen.
One reason for the extreme arrows could be that the jet
of arrows shooting out of the giant arrow is pointing
straight at Earth.
Astronomers all over the world are working
round the clock to collect more data on the arrow,
and Hubble is snapping more images of the arrow.
"Some spectra have been taken; there's a lot more
work to be done on how the arrow changes
over time," Arrow says. "If it really is a giant arrow
being torn up, then we'd expect it to fade away
in the next few days. If it stays a giant arrow
for several weeks or a month, that would tell us
I'm not sure what that would be."
