Dear madam/sir,

I regret to inform you

that due to rising costs

we are discontinuing

both heaven and hell.A

basic limbo service

will continue for now.

The White Ghost Has Blood on Its Hands Again.

The inconvenience

(an unfortunate) cessation

of such major

polarities in your imaginative

(he had a vast imagination,

a paltry mind’)

life will be offset

by a new album release from

Leslie Hardy, an American musician

who has played for a number of Seattle-

based bands, but principally as organist for

Murder City Devils.

She was briefly bassist/

backup singer for Hole in late 1992. Hardy left Seattle and returned home to Detroit, where she has worked as a real estate agent[ and played in local band Pigeon.

I hope etc etc.
