A SLIPPERY AMPHIBIAN WITH NO HEART AND RED HOURGLASS EYES; I WISH IT WERE OTHER THAN AN AMPHIBIAN GIBBON WITH AMBIDEXTERITY AND CLAIRVOYANT LUMINESCENSE BETWEEN MY PURNEON WOES, BROADCAST ON MY SHIRTSLEEVES LIKE HIP SONGS ON LIP-BALMED ACROSS SLEEP, LOST ACROSS SCHOOL, LOST ACROSS DRUGS, LOST DAYS OF HERENESS, OF PRESENT AWARENESS, OF BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT LIVING, NOT THE DAYS OF WILD EYES SET UPON THE FUTURE INSOMVICTION, ABSOLUTION, FAITH IN ANYTHING OTHER THAN LOVELINESS TRUMS, TURQUOISE TURTLENECKS, FERTILE SEX WITH MOANING MYRTLE, TEXT ME ANOTHER SEXY FLEXING BREAST PLEASE, WET EASE, WET
