uncontrolled tongues

performing rarities


ovation decrees


I appreciate your directness

oh anechoic ace


dump somnambulist powder

all over the childhood orchard


in the city I ferment


I wished some edge to meet me


true questions

the quasar in which elliptical opera takes



trust your tryst

a beauty tracker is a translator
