Q.Who was the hate monger? A purple triangle. Q. And who else was in on this?
The other purple triangles.
We had pledged our allegiance to the flag so many times and on such a regular schedule that we failed to see the little changes being made to the flag’s design.
Those sad little poems about horses all took place in America. Q. Who were the first Americans?
Young lovers. Beach dwellers. Meaningless voices
on the radio And in between those bloodless sermons?
Girls brushing sand from feet. In China, they eat horses.
The porcelain clowns on the mantle. In China, clowns are illegal.
Slash for Captain Marvel #3
우연은 가을에 반환합니다. We are the result of a ball.
더러운과 더러운. Calloused hand by calloused hand.
아이는 전투에 투입와 그녀의 무릎을 스킨. The failed attempt at bravado and misery.
그녀는 앞뒤로 흔들리고있다. We are walking a black horse.
여분의 차원에서 살았던 사람에 대한 양심의가책이 부족합니다. A sufficient attempt to produce an apple in a container.
World’s Fair 2
A huge word deserves to be worn
Strange breathing sounds From the punching bag
A coin deserves its slot Faces in profile and monuments triggering
Select Yellow balls
Select That which becomes visible
Brain’s tumor Surgeon’s eyes Ratio needed
Theatrical accuracy is a kind of accuracy After all
Select A central theme
Select a final purchase As the doors lining the circular floor Close halfway to suggest
The exit has survived its all-day public Humiliation at the hands Of its partner the entrance
The dancers shed their gold sequins Upon the polished floor.
