Why species decline 

Some scientists believe
that the broad-beaked
asparagus has a gambling
addiction. That is why it
chooses to live a solitary
existence on an equally
solitary rocky island some-
where in the lower reaches

of the Atlantic Ocean. Now
it only ventures to the casinos
of Macau once the regular
mating season is over, when the
chances of finding a mate
have become extremely low.


Bromeliads congregate in the foyer
of the cosmetic surgery. Their colors
are considered passé this year –
this is the only chance they have to
change them. The dry soil brought
in with them crackles as tanks roll
over it. Then helicopters land, their
camouflage now with a delicate

shade of pink that matches the blush
in the bromeliads' cheeks. As the blades
wind down the bromeliads can read
their whisper – one-time bloomers
are no longer to be trusted once they've
moved to the other side of the Great Divide.

A line from Man Ray

Almost by osmosis, the end
of 2021 is coming to a close
with too little time in the
classroom. Without the right

help, B-side remixes from con-
vention halls & race tracks
allow the uptake of water, even
though algorithms have been

developed for those of a more
curious nature. For the many
still unable to say no, two hund-
red & sixty-five million tracks of

bird songs & water sounds are
available on desktop & mobile
for free to assist in managing
any ongoing stress &/or pain.
