circles

British accents looped me back to childhood
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

effulgent push of the wheel
------------------------------------------------------------------------
entrance and exit cannot be differentiated

------------------------------------------------------------------------
i read as if I've read
nothing
------------------------------------------------------------------------

what you've stollen from me

wisdom

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

bow
to
yr
post-
poned

corpse
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

truth shows the truth
interdependent
with
madness
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
the tone of
me-not-me
requires
constant

attention
