ALAS, IN WANDERLAND, SEA CZAR CITY, VOL.6, PAGE 2

SoHi looked so low in his single at the Abandon Hope.

His daughter, Wing-Ding was by his side and looked as though the whole situation had thrown her.

“Mr. Hatrack”, SoHi said “I think some dope drugged my drink and it all has to do with Chinablock.”

Thats when Taxi Dancer waltzed into the room.

Taxi is half owner, with her ex-boss Henchman, of Henchman’s Music Academy, a Dime-A-Dance Hall on Harbour Drive.

She nodded to the Bench Press under my arm.

“Read the Grime Section yet?” she asked.

“No” I said and opening up the paper.

The headline was “China Clipper Strikes Again!”

Nack the Clipper mugged yet another woman last night coming out of the China Closet next to Baba Alley, then disappeared into Fogtown.

ALAS, IN WANDERLAND

The first time I set lies on SoHi of SoHi’s Quality Tailors, I told him what he did didn’t suit me.

Now here I was taking my first ride on our new Holly Trolly out to the Abandon Hope Hospital to see how he was faring.

SoHi had taken Weaving Road out of Drunken when he hit a patch of asphalt coated in oil and barely skirted around a log, ending up in a ditch, hemmed in by two trees and blanketed in needles that ended up giving him a spool of stitches.

I was thinking about progress as we bumped along the tracks.

Willet Fly says that soon everyone, not just prisoners, will have cell phones.

Airplanes will become Airfancy.

Men will quit aping monkeys.

Then my eyes fell back, once again, to this mourning’s Bench Press.

SEA CZAR CITY, THE DIARIES, PAGE 54, FEBRUARY 10

This morning Helen Wheels, my perceptionist, says to me: “One thing I don’t get boss.”

“Yes.”

“Well last week, during the Gearstart affair, you said with the Mother Bored destroyed, there is no way anyone else can leave Gulp Island.”

“Right.”

“Then how did you, a few tears back. during ‘The Case Of The German Shepherd Crook’, get to Cuba and home again?”

“That” I told her, “is a story for another pay.”
