a random other…

flarfish 67: blue bangle tangle

thin sterling, silver cuff, hand hammered
tangled up in blue and i love it!
cord comfortable and fused
more often than you would like?

thorny gold and silver vines
bind you tight in its inexorable hegemony:
thousands of artists toiling for 33
cents an hour in triangle shirt waist
conditioning and fetor

the death dress and identity of an early
viking age… 
* bead * tangle * bracelet *
* womens * everyday * ceramic * 
high polish from low sweatshops halfway
around the world…
or very near your corner 7-11

embroidered on her breast is a pattern
of pink roses obscured by a branding
iron welt

buy it at the gray market stall 
near the canal street subway stop
it can be can be transmuted into a random 
color…

or a random other whose bad luck was
being born on the backside of the globe…

wear it with pride and impress your
impressible friends with your 
narcissu-tchotchke

order the blue bangle tangle guidebook 
in 12 different languages
order now when a special occasion beckons:
one of my favorite things is going for cocktails

“Sweet is it, sweet is it
To sleep in the coolness
Of snug unawareness.

The dark hangs heavily
Over the eyes.”

— Gwendolyn Brooks / “truth”
