A tanka written by Lee Sonogan

Piñata - Wikipedia

Kayfabe is kind of a code. To break kayfabe is to let people know that the punch was not real and that the match was scripted. – John Darnielle

‘ake-fay’ parrybo,

Publicly in character,

Poignant allegro,

Non-souless brand thurifer,

Earthenware ostinato.

Are you going to answer my questions, or do I have to whack you with a stick until delicious candy surprises fall out? – Molly Harper
