“Crisp the Surface”

Shards of invention over
crisp dirt :: secreted
mouths whisper about
union and definitions :: small

“Inverse Blankets,” “Bloat Textures,” and “Grope Commerce”

compensation blankets
barrier the solitude
cold air :: we are aware
that skin is unsuitable ::

we are a perfection :: the mass
of an ego returns
#DIV/0! :: and we understand
we are not portioned ::
