dangerous compassions

I call you / from the comet's cradle

"You don't have to beg for mercy because mercy doesn't make you beg," is a line I like a lot from Devan Phenix's new album.

"The voice on the phone is very pleasant--it's a robot," is another favorite line.

But I wanted to tell you a funny conversation.

A rinses a dish and fork and puts them in the dishdrainer.  "Nonononono," I say.

"What Ming doesn't know won't hurt him," A says.

"But he does know," I say.  "He keeps track."

"Did he re-wash that pan I washed last time?" A asks.

"How did you know?" I say.

"I washed the shit outta that thing!"
