my spam

i've been getting a lot of spam in my earthlink email ever since i joined a yahoo group. (actually, i already was in a yahoo group, but it was a group dedicated to reading proust, so, needless to say, i rarely participated.) i am instantly bored by even the idea of different levels of spamblocking, so i've just been deleting all my spam.

but i just had to click on the spam from Lucille Gallegos, subject: "lysergic plume". these are, i swear to christ, the contents:

"Subject: lysergic plume

I have (hard copy) folder of collected "SPAM poems" and sometimes I read them as "found poetry." They're good!

i've heard you. and they are good. especially read with that beat sing-song like you do. this was the first time i experienced any of my own.

i think i'm going to use the phrase "lysergic plume" for something. should i cite the spam? how would one even begin to go about citing spam? i think i'm gonna use the phrase "citing spam" for something....

I love "aphid" as an entire sentence. It sounds like you, somehow.
