Here’s an excerpt (the first page of The Blah Story, Volume 8):

Then blah again to blah this time, where she blah blah with arty blah and blah in blah, took blah the simple blah, and wrote some blah blah poetry, supposedly the blah of a blah blah blah on the blah of the blah blah title My Blah Story:

Blah me. Blame you.
Blah you. About you. You blame me. Blah you.

I blah as you or blah by blah,
You know. You blah. You blah it out of blah.
Blah blah. Blah blah.

Blah blah, a blah,
Blah in blah.
Discovers blah and circles
Into blah. ‘My eyes,’ I scream.

And blah. There is. A blah blah blah.
On other blah. I see a blah.
Too blah, too blah blah blah.
As everything is blah.
Except my blah.

She blah.
I blah. I cannot blah.
‘Stop blah,’ he blah
And something changes,
Snaps into blah.
Back into blah. I lock the blah.

In locked blah,
Blah locked blah.
Forms changing other blah.
My blah. It blah blah sharply.
Blah themselves in empty busses
Phones are blah. They are.
Too fixed. Too blah.
