Luciferous Bristlecone

This pine, native to sulfureous and geyserly regions, produces cones of a diabolic nature. Its bract scales are commonly referred to as 'hell hulls.'

Oceans rising? It's the son of Poseidon.
Man, that dude can play a conch.

My Disturbed Neighbor

I don't know what his problem is,
but his shoveling's keeping me up at night.

As I was going up the stair
I saw a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish, he’d stay away.

Beings of thin-atmosphered galactic bodies are,
like their planets, exposed to meteoric impact.

I had an imp in a jam jar once. He was comfortable most days. Every so often he demanded to be let out so he could play tricks on those who he said had it coming.

He got into it up Jersey way. He'd been out all night leading Boy Scouts into the pine barrens when an APB went out for his arrest. They cornered him in Chatsworth and then squirreled him away someplace else. But I know his power of persuasion, so I'm holding onto the jam jar.

I keep looking at this one and drawing a blank.
I like him or her, though.
