She Has Briefly Returned From The Witness Protection Program

________________________________________________________________________________________________


© Mrs. CarPeo



The Institute of Inane Research
determined that Silhouette Sally
was very happy to be relocated
to an estate formerly owned
by Frank Sinatra

Temporarily released from the
Federal Witness Protection Program,
Un-silhouetted, she is seen here
perched upon Mt. Modem
at her former home
in Long Beach.

Staring out the window,
Silhouette Sally is thinking
with disdain about the image 
on the television screen.





Three broads and a blueprint:
What will they think of next?

And what the hell is that white line  
doing across the bottom of the screen?

When do I go back to Palm Springs?

The 86th Bullet: Another Comment About Freedom Of Speech

________________________________________________________________________________________________


When
inarticulate or unprepared
talking heads
are given the podium,
freedom of speech
becomes
freedom of ignorance

About That Picture With The Duck

________________________________________________________________________________________________


In the middle
of this image,
there is a duck
who appears to be alone in the
Belmont Pool 

Upon closer
inspection,
that is not 
true

The black dot
below the first
two red banners
of the bunting
is none other
than me

It required
repeated 
viewing
of this image
to make that 
determination.

Repeated
viewing
of a much older photograph of a swimmer
yielded the same result

That is,
I looked at
a 1958 snapshot
of my sister
—post-swim—
half a gazillion times
before realizing
I was in the picture

Moments ago, I underlined 
the black blur in the water.

It was Linda's little brother
in an inner tube.

 

________________________________________________________________________________________________
CONCLUSION:
The next time I see a duck 
either in the Belmont pool
or flying above it, I will say
Hello, Linda

The joy of doing so is that
Mr. CarPeo can harbor thoughts 
of "another woman" without
Mrs. CarPeo getting jealous.

That explains why Mrs. C 
is the smarter half
of our family.

Not To Be Confused With John Lennon's Imagine

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Imagine a state of endless praise
and gratitude and adoration...
then you have conjured a world
of hellish nullity and conformism.
