travel notes from happy england missed sharp ride to industrial yellow.
upon echo-lane alone i happened. grey smear covered in white scratch.
blue cave white butterflies cold black pool you opened fire door. to vague
eloquent music got exposed. city offset soft blue scuffs around stapledge.
northern hemisphere all portrait. crossroad girls singing en route to scum
-atorium. dropped anchor off trends. each green fold packed with brown
steeples. military lamb dead wheel & i met amongst iron trees. wore a silver
collar i fought a bear i liked it rejoiced with scissors shocked out amongst
unassailable discordance. through broken shutters i saw purple light hold
an empty fountain square. enough petite chefs to outrage economy. hemisphere
all collage surface no sunday drive with girls through summer green but purple
endgame rabid. oh parasite reciprocate do.
dropped anchor off the trends often came up
claret. to return to the city i couldn't bring
myself so circled surrounding countryside
once the green hill green hedgerows split
& i saw the distant cathedral spire.

blue tooth doubt a copy of a copy of the devil's candy beauty spot
illegal rave vague shapes most reminiscent of the past fell somewhere
about the edge but i championed ultra abstracts no discernable objectives

CORRECTION FACILITY AREA my life in the sunshine. mainstream
pull for nullified members a kind of promise. it will be thundershell but
to me like the sound of crows. pantomine horizon but i shall stand steady
for an outage. epic glue plague though nothing less than construction ahead.
all the shapes-i shall commit to square-1. in that interval for living i verified
sensations balanced what had scattered & patterned each exposure
against the hinge an adverse force then in rushed all the bastards.
charged by a black knight red pig frosted tree
cave-in tempo sharp orange place distraught
knife clarity why didn't you give me the time no
count when i gave you the time? was rain in upper
peninsula same time i gained better understanding
of dehibilitating injury. at the center of an edgeless
trench salted their honeytraps within a restless of
shades half felt the chicken switch fuzzy laser
liquid home a road to the right opened up the whole
of former derelict clay country but green men moved
about the hedgerows didn't like it.

allegies cranking up begins to correlate completely
unrelated numbers signal pulses back to white mountain

drone safely landed upon cathedral roof directly overlooking
biege city square all configured & about to engage standard

their towers starscape suspended from i look through

downed drone bloody amongst thorns shattered castle
backdrop so much for full power straight into a thicket of
squiggly bright lines signal pulses back to white mountain
"unless fire breather avoid fire breather unless fire
breather avoid stab alley unless fire breather scan
cluster unless fire breather scan cluster scan scatter."
once again their clumsy actions had been more than susceptible
& lingering doubts dominated the internal dynamics of my audit.

reversing upon itself seams left unripped too
complex to calculate. series of crowds so far have
stretched my mask no hotel bar my mask no hotel
bar has proved decisive. not once a floating of issue
more a respectful lowering of face each new day
illustrated further confusion loose intimate word strings
