Issue 5: Simon Howard
i kept finding leaflets years later though i’m allergic to stereo
innering statuary squirts.
from its diamond
nipples songs of flecks of.
cushions nor a mute storm
& has a cold cheek for blood
to learn against retaliatory.
statecraft descriptive of over
cloaks & the monster
is afterwards love as it always
nuances in odd-numbered.
viaducts on patch of moon
left over from the cannibalistic
balloon race gets this agonising
screwdriver though th’eye biopsy
island speckling rain.
i keep finding leaflets years later though i was allergic to stereo back then
encountered a similar specification
vagrancy & periwinkles stretching a
across ideal autobahns
& learning to disguise soliloquies
or at the outermost to slurp them is glove no 7000.
there will be buckets of chilled glands
reward for retrogressive calligraphy
& the next but never dithyramb
on a loop brings the heavens low.
embrace this pissed on wall
how the correlationist has blindfolds
for every outpost & aaaaargh splat.
