Just re-read a Cthulhu Mythos story I wrote about 1980 in homage to Frank Belknap Long, entitled "Through Outrageous Angles." I sure would do it differently now! And I found some grammatical errors.

gold-plated nothing
this urinal is solid
just like his head

Crazy Horse Runs for President


Claims ungulates need more rights,
They should get
their turn to ride,
Better food!
Spurs outlawed!
(Ok, fne)
But he goes too far:
Overtime pay!
Designer style in footgear!
(Prada nailed over the door?)
Leather? No!
No lamb or mutton!
And no Jamaican food!
That really gets my goat.

If we lived on an apricot

Instead of a planet
Fruit flies would be a menace.
The earth would neither expand
nor exhibit stasis.
Everything would be sweet.
You could get drunk
On what came out of a volcano
Nothing would last forever.
But then nothing does anyway

And it’s starting to grin


On the far side
they wait,
Coiled in taut anticipation –
the five hundred aliens of your childish dreams,
larger than life,
and twice as mean,
Because you put them
there when you left home.
Now the Moon is turning a new face
towards you
