The Usual Greetings and Salutations

jars of octopus
small dreams
giving my 110%

November 2, 2006
a butterfly slams into a tent peg
I feel about average

this cup of coffee
has too many of me
a thousand blinking wings

"New Year's Day-- / everything is in blossom! / I feel about average." (Issa, trans. Hass)
"The jars of octopus-- / brief dreams / under the summer moon" (Basho, trans. Hass)

Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!
make extra money
