The Goldfish Morgue Here at the Goldfish Morgue, we take true pains to process your dead fish in a way that's dignified whether Death is by misfortune or by homicide or if your fish blew out his little brains with special consideration gladly given to the fat and dumb and mentally ill, the sad, the rakish, the daffodil and the goldfish of our veterans. We're not just a Goldfish Morgue, of course, we're a full-service partner who grieves with rites, music and mourners for the bereaved who share the total loss and remorse. Economical plans start at $49.95 where we put him in a bag & throw him in the garbage but if you upgrade to the Fanfare Package your goldfish will be regally memorialized. Also, for a small Attachment fee, we'll strangle up to six people, including your wife, so your fish will have servants in that afterlife as a goldfish-headed Egyptian deity. Everyone in life has loved and lost and even for a bug-eyed little tearjerker we assign a dedicated caseworker to give perspective and assist with costs. Perhaps your goldfish liked to go on rides or was more a contemplative scholar, perhaps he liked to fuck around and holler or instead he kept it all inside, we'll tailor your bereavement then to fit, perhaps something elegant and tasteful or something so extravagantly wasteful The Coroner will have to clean up after it. We know everyone dies quite like a goldfish just as big as a puff of snow, as grand as a little gold can go, as important as a secret wish, which is why the Goldfish Morgue is your friend in the business regretfully for no one is as small and loving as me when all the world is coming to an end.
My Other Counsel The Bubbly flat, my clouds all out of air, how could I fuck my life so upside-down? My Other Counsel advises me to dare. My Inheritance gone, I’m now aware my pants like every jest have fallen down, the Bubbly flat, my clouds all out of air. I ring for more like a trillionaire drinking til I’m blithe another noun. My Other Counsel advises me to dare. A police line-up in my underwear, my usual Beauty pageant lets me down the Bubbly flat, my clouds all out of air, of course I spend my days and nights impaired, whatever my stupidity compounds my Other Counsel advises me to dare. Hit in the face with a Gucci and a chair my nose makes its fat, familiar sound the Bubbly flat, my clouds all out of air. My First Counsel chides me to beware after I’ve been pissed out on the ground. My Other Counsel advises me to dare. Love is all but could I pair a little bit of fish at half a pound the Bubbly flat, my clouds all out of air, or should I just finger the au pair, is that still considered screwing around? My Other Counsel advises me to dare. I hear them say, I think he’s coming round but I lean back into its eiderdown in Bubbly’s flat, my clouds all out of air. My Other Counsel advises me to dare.
Banoshuya That   night   I   asked   the   Mother   of   God   what   was   to   become   of   me.   Then   she   came   to   me holding   two   crowns,   one   white,   the   other   red.   She   asked   me   if   I   was   willing   to   accept either of these crowns. The   white   one   meant   that   I   should   persevere   in   purity,   and   the   red   that   I   should   become a martyr. I said that I would accept them both.                                                                                                                      St. Maximilian Kolbe This pasture is so beautiful, soft and green bordered row on row in red and white. Purgatory is the land between the prayer in the morning and the prayer at night. The flowers are beyond all power and despair; we bloom our heavy furnaces all day but look how they curl in my hand and fall asleep in such a painful flame.
