Raw Encoded Cities
Her easy touch belies a certain inability to ascertain embodied grace of cocktail pinafores in stains of lifelong extirpation, pinning scratched insignias to doorstop miniatures along the fluid barrier of process camper neuron sift, grazing ambulatory rain with leaden pallor’s fusillade of warm ballistic tutelage.
