Tetris Logic

I have not been chosen to work

on the extraterrestrial project, but then

neither has anyone else. All those years

of mastering my private world with

Tetris logic has not paid off, but continues

to perpetuate itself none the less. To please

the remaining earth I will make a small car

that is powered by a sail. I refuse to go

to the Home Depot, so I must re-organize

the old thingsā€”I pull out lengths of canvas

from chests of dust and dull but

beautiful glass. There are so many

unique combinations of strange

items and at times it seems like

there is no sailboat car, at other

times it seems like there are many.
