The Palinomicon: Hockey Moms of Darfur

Spent. Almost devoid of speech. The “unbinding” itself must suffice.



Reaffirming, on the eve of Hockey Night in Darfur, the naming rights sold to the burning village

Welcoming the janjaweed shooting free Slayer t-shirts into the crowd

Commending genetically modified genocide

Remaining deeply concerned by Canadian imperialism and calling upon bipolar War of 1812 reenactors to desist in the importation of mountie hentai

Reiterating that Canadian predators infect jackal-swallowing horses

Expressing a tidal self when Moloch is only itself and stick

Taking note of the zambonis spliced into the All-Unseeing Eye

Recalling the use of extreme starvation as a form of worship by the captain against other captains

Determining a haircut is a human right for the ceremony cyborg


Decides the punch-card crack-of-ass strip mall is the mandate of motherhood and a swing state

Welcomes the fetal slot machine for its moonskin puck

Requests the rapid adoption of warlocks with seasonal affective disorder and urges Au Pairs Without Borders to cinch the primrose flak jackets

Decides the runaway asteroid laden with consciousness-feeling bacteria should crash the commonwealth of glass

Expresses its intention to disinvest castaways with bloodthirsty Dark Crystal cosplay on skates

Invokes claw o’clock until the bad bell rings
