I've seen the website for these ter-lets before.

Um... how was it?

My only good foreign toilet story (I think that might be the title of my next collection: Foreign Toilet Stories) is that the Kunsthaus in Zurich last year set up a working toilet in front of the museum right in view of a busy intersection and encased in that stuff they use for viewing windows at police line-ups-- where you can see out but they can't see in. So you're peeing and it's like the nightmare where you have to go in full view of the world. I did it. It was kind of fun.

Jill, er, they've never been able to perfect that one-way mirror stuff, although they tell you they have. At a certain angle, you can see right through, clear as day. We--we thought you knew that.

Is THAT how those pictures got up on that website?

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
