Back to Black

It was the fourth wettest May on record.
American Pharoah won the Triple Crown

but more than two thirds of winning tickets
from the Belmont have not been cashed.

An Animated History of 20th Century Hairstyles
and step-by-step photos of my friend’s rhubarb

crumble. Amy Winehouse singing Back to Black
on a slightly asynchronous video, with black blouse,

black slacks, black mascara, black eyebrows and
black hair piled like an elegant and capricious hay-

stack, like a history of animated hairstyles, like
tickets uncashed, like tickets cashed too soon.
