Clementines II

What sort of fruit
is bred to be seedless?
Where is the point of that?

Fruiting bodies are
meant to be eaten,
which is weird enough in itself.

It only makes sense when the seeds
in the fruit
are spread through the world,
fertilized.

(Which frankly makes humans bad-eaters of fruit
given our septic-system and all)

But not to have seeds
in the fruit, even one?

What’s the point? Even humans can eat ’em.
No good will be done
for the tree
or the species.

What a highly domesticated
pampered and paupered
strange little symbiote
clementines are.

  • Enjoying a lovely sunny day. Discovered I suck at tetherball and I don't care a button, I don't care a fig! #
  • Today I planted a tree. On (near?) Earth Day. As a semi-hippie-chick, you'd think I'd be proud. In fact, I just judged the tiny twig-things. #
  • @bewareleopard He kind of almost sort of asked me. But I am coming from Providence so it does not really make the most sense. in reply to bewareleopard #
  • TRUTH: "Primes are sexy and rebellious — they would rather die standing than live on their knees." – @bigrbananahead #
  • (Re: prev. tweet – worth noting that pretty much all the time I spend on my knees is sexy time. Or time w/ small dogs or children. Y'know.) #
  • Seems I love mathematicians. I love them as they sit and work and grumble, I love them when they explain math in terms of romance. All Love. #
  • Which I guess makes sense because apparently the truth about math is that numbers (or number-like-objects) are all polyamorous. #
  • Apparently Google thinks it's a good idea now to suggest to me who I might want to include in an email. In case I forgot. #noshutupdamnyou #
  • Recognized the band songs and songs ago; waited patiently, now the song I know & love is playing. "Through the crack in the window pane…" #
  • @shadalicious @teaguehopkins I guess my contacts are just particularly hard to predict. They were way off for me. in reply to shadalicious #
  • @Ladysun333 Wow, you look lovely like that! in reply to Ladysun333 #
  • Oh, I see! The construction on the two squares of sidewalk outside my window and the insanely loud latin music from downstairs switch off! #
  • This must be so that I am merely constantly annoyed, and never laid out flat by a migraine. Thanks, dudes!! #
  • @this_isbollocks How's the view from out there? in reply to this_isbollocks #
  • @this_isbollocks ALWAYS. Mine goes with an Accai Warrior Smoothie. I have the health. in reply to this_isbollocks #
  • @HiOhMegan I presume that's just because you're trying to look him in the face, my dear, petite lady. in reply to HiOhMegan #
  • @PassionAndSoul If you're for real interested, I can do that for you. I've done it for others. I've an awesome diplomacy check. in reply to PassionAndSoul #
  • @olorwen <3 in reply to olorwen #
  • @PassionAndSoul I'm not clergy. As far as oaths of secrecy – 'sacred' may not be best word. More like 'tantamount.' Maybe not what you need? in reply to PassionAndSoul #
  • @passionandsoul I understand. I hope you find someone to fill the role. #
  • @00Syd DO IT DO IT DO IT! in reply to 00Syd #
  • @MajaMajaMaja @00Syd Oh man, all of them! Just put a single word from every historical era you can. "What Ho, Cool Cat? Seizing the day?" in reply to MajaMajaMaja #
  • @00Syd There's no way you can be more ridiculous than he is. Be bold, you have the upper hand already! in reply to 00Syd #
  • @PassionAndSoul Holy heck, holy heck, the lights are flickering on and off here at #favorite #cafe. Also treated today to "Africa" by Toto. in reply to PassionAndSoul #
  • Power flickering in this cafe is crazy. Music and internet continue, lights and com power waiver. Super odd, but fairly fun. #
  • @PassionAndSoul So sorry last tweet was randomly directed at you. I pressed the reply button on accident and didn't notice as I tweeted. #

  • So, ok. I know not a lot of people stay up late writing Anglo-Saxon style poetry. But I still want a dictionary based on alliteration. #
  • Ok, apart from the issue of there not being great word-hoard style resources, there's another problem with A.S. style poetry… #
  • … it's meant to be epic. That means it's really hard to contain. It wants to sprawl to a hundred lines and go nowhere. How to keep quick? #
  • @DDog you tease! what flavor is it? in reply to DDog #
  • Completed short (but epic!) poem in the Anglo-Saxon style about the cruelness of Comp Sci. I feel accomplished, but the homework rages on. #

  • @this_isbollocks Spent the weekend watching a very nice App Math PHD locked in bitter battle with his compsci work. I hold no love for it. in reply to this_isbollocks #
  • @this_isbollocks And a nice warm place to store your cock on occasion? in reply to this_isbollocks #

  • This world is so full so full so full, and nothing equals anything else out, and everything does. #Joy and #sorrow #
  • Oh my god I think that the cafe is baking cookies. Or something. Deeeelicious. #
  • @hodgman Well friend Hodgman, the myspace page it links to is very clear about the fact that that ain't Bruce. Maybe the twitter is? in reply to hodgman #
  • I want to be the type of thing that moss likes to sprout on. If concrete can do it why oh why can't I? #
  • @this_isbollocks Wow. That bad? in reply to this_isbollocks #
  • @this_isbollocks I'm sorry darling. in reply to this_isbollocks #

  • @this_isbollocks Sometime next week perhaps? in reply to this_isbollocks #
  • @HiOhMegan You are just a bundle of information today, lady! Amazing! Thanks! in reply to HiOhMegan #

  • 'I didn't mean to grab your boobs but I'm not sorry it happened.' Yay #girl #039;s #night #
  • Chilly spring day, but plotting table design for a new home, I feel warm and cozy. #
  • Sometimes my job is just reading a book while being periodically called on Skype by @JohnTUnger while he tests mics. #
  • 'He found another supernova?!' Dinner with college friends makes me feel inadequate. It's like family in that way. #
