inspired by Sarah Vowell's Assassination Vacation


Tell me more about
about the megacolon
how in the world did it get so big?

A piece of John Wilkes Booth
Floating in a jar
on display at the Mutter Museum

She's still debating how to answer the question
it's not uncommon to join your collection

Frozen in carbonite
next to the beers in the greenroom
somebody drew a mustache on my face
i bet it was probably Geoff
