to gush forth

ambits of cells account beyond basin valley
barefoot sad one breaks words from harms
crush gold cordial
dew salt held in walls
end paper crawl to begin sung flower
flighted passage night feather
ground make warm grasp shadow
hands translate in order to say
I’m for the jabber
jumping corridors and fancies
local by story line of air
meander nuances my narrow emergency
noises which stop night nowhere burning
odd habits of hair
patinate old roads with coming
question crosses time reference: escarpment
remainders gutter our star close luminous
song scaring night transports lost tattooed
tears playing stone bathed to gush forth
violet interior marks attempt at continue
what on the other hand sky this damage
xerotic and crying for milk
your misty throat
zampillare, yes, yes, to gush forth
