“the body has gone underground due to widespread persecution.” Madeleine Shine

in those times of the interior in those times of the interior in those times of the interior in those times of the interior
of antimony of ambergris of kohl of Zanzibar and Shendy
dig my grave I will dig yours in wet vellum we go stark laughing
rush/ from behind trees it was reported huge grinning
clutch/ladies of amorous to them covered in fur
fevers/shivering oh fearful greek katyusha on a cigar of all nations unconscionably requited
Freud bitten himself to death Reich askance the whole winter’s edge Jung suddenly addressed with fondness his stockpot keep it for your aghast moments
this ape thing this ape thing this ape thing this ape thing
not universally acknowledged as myth my half-brother now summertime duke piss off into your walled garden not universally acknowledged as myth
