I meant the other other


“I” is always its own first & only letter.
The only emails I send to myself have the subject

“Stuff.” Is this a think piece or a puff piece?
If the mountains dominate, do the plains object?

Capitalization has not always been standardized.
It uSed tO LoOk lIke THis. I won’t subject

you to the other horrors of recorded history.
The natural landscape is lurid w/ object-

ionable materials; nothing’s safe & everything’s tasty
& caloric content is a mystery. The subject

of this conversation, if it even has one, is
me--as an object lesson: a lesson in objects.
