this is from the famous poet e. e. cummings. title of poem is "Buffalo Bill 's" first published in 1917:

Buffalo Bill 's
              who used to
              ride a watersmooth-silver
and break onetwothreefourfive pigeonsjustlikethat

he was a handsome man
                                        and what i want to know is
how do you like your blueeyed boy
Mister Death

this is from Steve, an anti-caffeine activist from Redwood City (10 min. away from me), published maybe last week, or last year, whatever:

About: ---'Me': I'm ---49ish 'Young'! I ---'U-s-e-d' ...'Caffeine' ---'Un-Knowing-ly' for: 25 or-so Years! I'm ---'NOW': ---'Healthy', 'Not-Wealthy' & ---'Wise'!(...!) I 'Love' Pets' & Family! I Play Music & like the Garden! I Smoke 'Pot' & 'Drink' some, too! I have: ---'NO-DOCTOR'! *** 'NOW-ATTENTION' *** .....'About ---'THEM' ? 'They' ---'Induce' ---"DEATH"? .....'So ---'They' can ---'Prolong' ---'LIFE'? (...'You' ---"FOOLS"!!) ...You: 'Miserably-Addicted', 'Cut-Short', 'Drug-Dependent', 'Short-Changed', 'Bull-Shit' & 'Tattered', 'Up-Tight' & (...'Out-of-Light'!...), You: ---'Pathetic', 'Health-Problamatic' ---"WRECK" of a ---'HUMAN-'Dead'-BEING'!! .....'Got the ---"Picture"?............. (read rest from CoffeeDonut.net)

I met Steve from craigslist. I spoke with him at length about the evils of caffeine. I support his cause, but I'm going to pass on doing his website. When I saw his ad, I thought it was going to be some hipster coffee shop looking for an arty website. Bummer.
