Epidermal Comfort

Trick gains ground
but shouldn't shift
the body of water
or the burnt boy.

The citizens
of chance social
adoration. Girls
worth salt.

Thirsty and illegal,
I hover around
the parallels
of your agency.

Speak of the granular
velocity's double
case dodged in or is it
just a spelling mistake?

the raciological
is a trip.

Trout Lake
might break the rule
in that video
on I Ching.


Just Dropped Off

After I turned
the corner
the rule was cod
and broccoli on rice.

I call this
Dedora's Moment,
it's that abstract.

We never take soot
into the backyard
unless we're on the way
to work.

Where was that,
Central asphalt's new
100-year premium.

But that's just
the thumbnail.
And it's scrubable.

Books open
which is what keeps
things hopping.
For hope.

Set the draft
in the chimney
to "I fold."



Well, it's her farm
now. Part of
the constitution.

Mitigate your travel
to China
with a dictionary.

For years
they thought he was
in the Phillipines.

The return address
over an old one
in a new language.

Apply motion
to property
and get reclaimed.

Canada geese
transgress all sorts
of intentions.

He said she should
learn Mandarin in case
they want to migrate
back to China.
