The Ego Lets Go of the Ego
And One-Page Variations

Anne Tardos, February-March 2007

Itís the ego that lets go of the ego.
A leftist is usually right.
Everyone is really a very fine fellow.

I am an Acoustican.
I come from the planet Acoustica
Where we goham yeolnia ooh yeeanh 
Some varsity sensibingatee zenifer lida

Different papilla pamina different zugoria.

The standing the name the gesture
The movement
One cigale verisimilitude sentimentablement genial

Dissertation vegetation permission

A very fine fellow

Eudoraís fedora in doric-mode 

Appearance rapidity (what I mean is that to dogs and birds
we humans must appear as slow-moving as iguanas appear to us)


The egg lets go of the egg and becomes a bird
The bird appeals to our sense of freedom 
and makes a cat salivate mentally
Cats donít salivate
Dogs salivate
Therefore dogs donít salivate mentally but actually
Birds donít salivate
I doubt they even salivate mentally

The killer instinct brushes its teeth at night
It flosses between its thoughts

Thoughts that create sounds
Sounds that become words

Some words get along very well with others 

Canít hold on to anything 
Not to the bird or the stone in your hand you would never throw at a bird

All of this is really happening.

The girl lets go of the girl and becomes an adult
After a while, she will let go of herself and become something else
Itís difficult to understand what 
But I know that all of this is really happening
And that everyone is a very fine fellow

You confirm and you build by repetition
You invent a device that will repeat for you as needed

You hand a fist-size stone to a child and watch her break into a smile
The stone will remain calm and composed inside the little fist 

The stone dreams of the beach and of sandhood
The edge of the water where the children play

A play is by definition amusing
A muse is by definition a scantily clad young female floating about



A penguin understands the meaning of life just as a seal ends it. 

Shilly-shally winter death
Monkey colorectum
Embrionic bazaar fracas 
comprehension overcast

Cendrier Baudrilliard
Upscale venison

Vertical severance
Digital mismatch

Empanades truc machin-chose
You chose to be the dingo

A pecking order in Beijing 

to be 
to live 
to do 
to give
to die

A cat, a sweetheart, maybe a baby
In this case, maybe a koala

The eagle lets go of the eagle
Its need to control reality causes its insomnia
Fear creates what is feared

Conversation scuba diddle
Verification jumble zig

Pretty little short supply
Glitter kindness gender gap
Delicate gene pool 
Frisbee mutation
Unexpected peppermint


Thought exists.
Rigid necessity.


The writer lets go of intention and considers the alternatives
She is thinking about writing about thinking

Her imagination has gone for a walk, along with her intentions 
Arm in arm, the two walk around the block to get some exercise

They stop at a feminist sex shop in Chicago and admire the sex toys
Then they purchase a big bag full of pine-bark mini-nuggets at a garden supply store, for which they pay peanuts

The writer tends to view all men as her feather

A feather seems lighter than air

How do you air a grievance? Is that anything like rhubarb?

Rhubarbs are to be enjoyed in moderation because of their high oxalic acid content. Calcium oxalate has been associated with
the formation of kidney-stones because the calcium combines with oxalate in the intestines and this reduces calcium's ability
to be absorbed.

Kidneys and stones will brake my bones
But beans will never hurt me
