Lining up inside a pod.

But in fact it wouldn’t be,

Lay your caps and heads

Gently on your cozy mushroom beds.

The loam’s soft and spongy,

The light’s right for fungi,

So hush little mushies, hush.

Sometimes The Believer has themes each month that come with, well, I think of them as gifts.  Once their theme was Art and the tear-out insert in the front had the most beautiful temporary tattoos. The Music editions have come with a mix CD that makes INDIE 103.1 sound like Top 40.
