A Special Edition of The East Village
Hurricane Floyd: Thanks for spinning all the trash outside my window. Thanks for cleaning the windows. For stirring up infected mosquitoes, and for washing away all the pesticides used to kill the infected mosquitoes. The streets are quiet without you. Hurricane Floyd. Uncle Bud: Thanks for the sheets, or was it for the money. Thanks for socking me in the arm, and for mispronouncing Chablis. Thank you for roses, but specifically for rose tattoos. Thanks for winter. Uncle Bud. Banshee: Thanks for the uproar, for the overthrow. Thanks for the puke, for all the great graffiti. The socks were really great, and thanks for the loot. The TV gets 500 channels! Thanks for that. The rock kit makes great arrowheads. Banshees. Mr. McCarthy: Thanks for the lobster. I'd never eaten a crab without a shell. I loved it! Thanks for the view, and for the sea. I saw it at 4am and it was wild, like a dream. Thanks for the Guinness, and the code name "Verona." Use it with discretion. Mr. McCarthy. Dr. Salvadio. Thanks for the advice, but it was too late. He's dead. If you had told us his liver was chicken, he'd still be with us. I should sue you, but I know you're a family man. I'll let it go. But keep on your side of the road. Until the next life. Dr. Salvadio. Andre Breton: So you're a surrealist. Oh, and thanks for the dream imagery. I use it all the time. In my dreams, I see surrealism. I don't know what I would have done without you! Thanks so much. I especially love flying, it is really fun. Andre Breton.
