Suite: Teal Celica

Jeff Tigchelaar



Alternative content


Don’t talk to me about my sales margins
until you’ve thoroughly examined your own sales margins

Don’t talk to me about Genesis

Don’t show up in a teal Celica
and expect me to talk
about your teal Celica

Don’t expect me to buy your drink

Don’t talk to me about comforting angels

Don’t expect me to buy your theology

Don’t show up in a teal Celica
and expect me not to talk about the teal Celica

Don’t just expect me to nod in assent

I have been disillusioned since Gabriel left




Goals

Jeff Tigchelaar



What we need
is a multi-purpose solution.
What we’re after
is a genuine draft.
What we know is that
the market will surely come back.
What we say is seldom what we mean.
What we have here
is another attempt to communicate.
What we’re really looking for
is a beautiful Sunday in Michigan,
wherever that might be.
