Issue 3: Peter Middleton
He heave end.
Inequality is salad
for the staff
of life, or
We shares in the market
fall into habits
of deferred grace.
Do many names
The word is para paradise,
Helping out hope
with small improvements
lightly sprayed oil
We have to climb up to the ruined monastery,
You can feel the allegory in the tractor road
the dumb place doesn’t care, out of sight
LCD landscape disappears in sunlight,
We believe with cameras. The eighth century
nave, apse, dortoir, all heavily restored.
left empty terraces to dust. Back at the house
orange stars mark switches in the dark.
