The Common House Is Under Construction! the meantime, enjoy this post-holiday gift:

@rockefeller center I bump into a giant marching band x-mas decoration

electric hats and siren call
as red as any fat-plumed
cardinal this time of year

has landed I believe them!
I believe them max!
have faith my kinky

boot beast my sub-
mariner crunching
nuts and digits

I am twiddling!
(I twiddle!)
I am a painted bowl of ice!

I am a dancing sugar plumb!
my fairy has no wings
my ice has no tongue!

my tin man has no heart
oh take me home take me
home you deity of nails!

you harbinger of wood!
You-uniform Improvement
wind and spin me your direction

so we may hold mass
and get mechanical
