Scenes from My Life as the Abominable Snowman
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

1.   The pseudo-mummification of a disembodied hand

2.   Substitute for a doll or dog

3.   Gargling consonants by myself in a snow-shaped crib

4.   I exult in the dark on an ice-cold schist shelf

5.   Communication in code, or popsicle sparrow

6.   A brisket, a maths test, a kitten in a basket

7.   Two haberdashers walk into a bar . . .

8.   If enchilada, then no muy guapa

9.   Six fingers, two thumbs, type 4a hair

10.   Who ate the snows of yesteryear?

  • 11.   Combing the radar waves for insider information

  • 12.   I am mistaken for a black bear, a bald deer, a land whale, and blind eagle

  • 13.   On the paucity of human understanding

  • 14.   Evaded southpaw menace by briskly sketching an exit

  • 15.   Trapdoor 1, Homo sapiens 0

  • 16.   Soporific lull before the next defensive episode

  • 17.   I friend a bird with supersonic powers

  • 18.   Into the æther

  • 19.   Overview of Nebraska, with added narrative matter

  • 20.   Ruh-roh

  • 21.   Crash landing and bird's nest followed by partially abandoned cabin

  • 22.   As seen in shearling cap with tied-up earflaps

  • 23.   Flat as a catfish, pancake, ice rink, or beefsteak

  • 24.   To mallet a mélange of local rabbits

  • 25.   Interior of tornado with bust, jug of flowers, and uprooted steer

  • 26.   Hello tundra

  • 27.   Pointer: optical illusion of Inuit turkey

  • 28.   In the hall of the doppelgängers

  • 29.   Hermeneutic fondue with surprise and chips

  • 30.   On the persistence of singularity
