Keep crushing it more & more!; grind it in harder; take all of its air away!; I am going to step on it.

Winter slush TRU-FIT socks, massive sack of 10 Pair.
The little socks illustration is almost the exact picture I get in my head when I think about my feet.

Do you like the way it feels to Pad Around in Winter Slush in Sock Feet.

"Cushion Crew" might be a good name for a group of friends to call themselves…

Veit Co. is bringing European Design to the backalleys of Minneapolis. The dumpster was assembled from a collection of missingly-pointed triangles. Consult a specialist to find the dumpster shape that's right for your nasty old dirty backalley.

Product of the year!  RCA "foldable neckband headphones" / "plegable neckband auriculares," sidewalk litter.
I bought a pair because the thin young man reminds me of me, I like to be up overtop of people and photographers. Except I'm not a photoshoot male model.

That's not my litter and I didn't pick it up and throw it away because I read where a study found w…

Small gray & black flower.

Small gray & black flower.
This is the kind that smells like earthiness & pet urine.

People might want to look up close at the aptbldg back there because some of them might get excited over the modernistical varisized hexagonal decorations upon its façade.

Sticktoitive clinginess to chainlink of whiteness from the air.
To remind us of the fuzzey pipecleaner decorations U.S. children used to make. Why'd those go out of fashion, in the schools etc.

I don't go to church because of past incidents. Maybe do kids use pipecleaners in the churches still? To make crafts.

Ice cave formations, interesting dangling icicles yet dangerous.

Ice cave formations, interesting dangling icicles yet dangerous.
I radioed the captain to have him radio the groundscrew to let them know they need to put out some cautiontape to keep people away from the icicles. We're not Russia so we're not gonna have people dying left and right from falling icicles.

A visit to the headquarters of the World Mission Prayer League.
This is totally a really weird vision I'm getting, but when I close my eyes I feel like dentistry used to happen inside of that building, way in the past. I see people drooling into little spitsinks. They touch their numb chins.

Later there must have b…

There is a kind of crust, a crustiness, that has got some kind of a feathered look to it somehow, I keep noticing, I cannot understand.

I hope they're completely damaged. I do not ever want to hear anymore of their terrible noises.

No more vrooming nor chugga-chugga sounds, nor bad smells from tailpipes in the mornings. I clapped my hands when I saw the mess they were in.

My heart's arms are reaching out yearning to help the branches be freed from the burdemson [sic] ice's cruel weight that bends them down. But I am to busy too rescue them!

South Minneapolis small area of trash.
Garbage don't stink in the wintertime so it don't matter, plus it probly ought to biodegrade pretty quick in the brilliant sunlight.

The condo balcony-dwellers would be trashy if they were the ones that threw down the garbage, from off of their balconies…

I think maybe they had meant to end up in St. Paul?, but here they are anyhow. They seemed really really timid, and I saw a lot of nose-picking.
