Stoleniferous

TWO SELECTIONS

Modern Miracles

Dedicated fans of linguistics love tongue twisters, French kissing, and psychobabble. Not including Cognitive Anal Syndrome, a condition noted by a pioneer of libidinal equality, who encouraged men to take the who out of whore and women to take the over out of lover and relish the leftovers. A simple diet of beans and corn keeps the psychologist away. The call for heroic discipline in the quest to reveal everyone’s humanity inspires salesmen to turn silent and weep, capitalists to divest themselves of finance and invest in public works for the profit of the community, and prisons to release their inmates to hug the trees in the national forests and subsist on the greedy insects devouring them. As greedy as universities flourishing on the absence of meaning. Dressing for success breeds camophlage, denys upbringing, and thinks of toilet paper as poetry in motion. Ever since God was born the womb turned out drudges until the invention of the tin can opener unleashed the recipe for easy does it and the rise of psychobabble.


Wet Dreams

The poetry of rural crime celebrates nightmare as existence, from which no one can awake. Those who soak their vocal chords in daily baths of testosterone cannot escape the femininity of banning reality from the home where life, death, and love dance to the tunes of gay caballeros. The blue sky above inspires starving artists to feed on the abstract expressions of clouds and the impending feasts to be delivered by the helicopters and jets just beyond reach. A tight, dour, minimalist performer entertains the self in the mirror by scowling, eyebrows raising a ruckus, each hair springing into a mad tangle of enigma and fugal variation. As fugal as Bach on steroids. Vacuum cleaners pretend not to notice the filth they consume by surrendering their ethics to the slaves that produce the electricity. Corporations that embrace the future when their time is over, delude the consumer with the nightmare of eternal promise.

Selected Works

Literary Nonsense
Strange tales strangely told in concise twists and turns with improbable events and resolved through odd happenings and by slippery detectives who can't wait to get back to the beach.
Xavier y Zungie steals literary phrases and lifts foggy abstractions from elegant magazines combining both with his own sense of the absurd to confront the nonsense we experience every day.
Satire
The history and antics of the gods and goddesses who dwell on Thorn Prick Peak and how they created the universe and provided guidance for the people on the earth through the forecasting Icons found in The Orbitology.
Fiction
"A spell-binding tour de force of diabolical dialogue"–
–Barry Gifford
"In vino verbosity, as they say," wisecracks one of Sean Connolly's main characters in this slightly surreal, darkly comic novel about the search for constancy in a very inconstant world. Charles and Garth are downing drinks at the Black Dog Inn, but, in a dramatic technique reminiscent of the classic film My Dinner with Andre, their dialogue transports us far beyond those walls through the adventures of rogues and rapscallions in such far-flung locales as Baltimore, New York, Key West, and ultimately Cambridge, Massachusetts.
"One of Those Days" A series of zany radio cartoons, each episode running about two minutes, staring a nameless dog down by the fireplug, his master Joey The First, his wife, Delicatessen Jill, her companion JoJo The Chicken, and all their neighbors who love to party out on the streets.
