So you kin just travel -- I ain't givin 'money away on uselessnesses!'
From Sand Hill to Pine Bret Harte 1869
mollusque commented on the word uselessnesses
The Good Humor trucks blared bells
Each afternoon, their engines
Whirring to save the delight
Of cold, sweet uselessnesses.
Nuclear stereos rocked
The boulevards, the old piers
Splintering and rotting out.
