for all of you poet car mechanics


well i recently got a car. today, it didn't start right. i don't know. it just wasn't right. so i opened it. i opened the car. there is a space, under the hood, where something should be. i don't know what should be there, but something is missing, and it's probably a tube of some sort, and maybe a cover for the tube, and maybe also some bolts. (see above; this picture is taken directly behind the right headlight).

it is possible that when i was at work last night (autism ravioli), in the neighborhood where the words "CRIPS ZONE" are spraypainted with an arrow pointing down the street of the house of the boy of autism ravioli, someone took whatever is now missing.

pretty sure that some kind of living animal, or animal part, is needed to connect those things. an eel, or mongoose. maybe just wait and it will come back.

Isn't that your air filter? What gets connected to that? What kind of car is it?

After looking up "what's connected" on wisegeek, I'd say it might be your "intake manifold". I have no clue, really. But I'm terribly curious now.

"Generally, the air filter holder is connected to the intake manifold by a large plastic tube through which the air flows."

actually I just noticed that there were bad words in the two previous comments so I just decided to try to write bad words

dear john ashbery fan,

that's very astute, looking up 'air filter' on the internet. i hadn't thought of that. but i also didn't identify my air filter; i only identified that i am me, and i drive a car.

'exhaust manifold' sounds magnificent, and may shortly become the new name of my emo log.

love,
john ashbery fan fan

ps it's a honda. purple. purplish-grey.
