Day pass



"...I wonder
If there's been a population explosion
In heaven and the angels

Have migrated to Tuscaloosa. ..."


From "The Multiplying Man" by Peter Huggins

IF I were an angel (and heaven knows I'm not), Tuscaloosa would NOT be my preferred destination.

Sometimes I think there has been, and Tuscaloosa sounds like a place they'd go to. Except I've actually met some and it wasn't there, but in Qoaling.

Wonderful, wonderful line to write.
