united states of influenza

influenza is a beautiful word.
I had my vaccination against the american influenza.They say i fit the profile.
The shot cost me nothing but still i paid fiftyfive dollars for the doctor.
If i had seen that coming i would have requested a script for valium or something.

Amid a newwave of heatwaves,the start of a summer of heat and smoke,the end of seemingly endless assessments i have been promoted.
Heat and smoke have quickly become our new national shudder..the new funnelweb spider,the new eastern brown snake, the new six metre shark.
