Tuesday’s concubine tastes like a mental strawberry, flowers as if to sprawl yoga legs bi-costal. Marshal, let me squeeze my axons until they electrocute my thigh-high chakra root. A placebo bears false witness like a docile sugar daddy, educates and then disintegrates. My antigens are abominable, they forget that a venereal disease fights extinction like a triceratops. All acorns are pro-life; they perpetuate more than they depress. A watchmaker articulates climate change, focuses time as if vile light bends or rapes. Oh punk man cometh, build us castles from corroded piles of omitted penitentiaries. If this is psychosis, let us blame the unchaste symbiosis, ions rubbing elbows. A tetanus shot is medicine’s Rube Goldberg; it prostitutes biological serendipity. Fallow father, trial a ripe laceration. I communicate better in preventative light.
