artemia2I hear the mermaids singing, rolled in their mystic crypts, their dry bones dreaming of saltwater and light. They are singing to me, Tom Eliot.

alima of squillaApex of emotion. Bellyful of laughs. Cast of thousands. Depth of field. Evening of scores. First of many. Gallon of milk. Half of yours. Isthmus of Panama. Jar of jam. Knave of hearts. Last of pea-time. Mop of hair. Noblest of causes. Order of Oddfellows. Powers of ten. Quiet of midnight. Roster of players. Show of hands. Terrine of soup. Unraveling of plot. Vagueries of doubt. Worst of intentions. X-axis of space. Yard of beer. Zen of tennis.
