A Few Degrees Off I stumble into culinary mayhem such tongue-in-cheek a tug-of-war with market share prices white-knuckle driving through the living room unscripted scenes in my family reunion wholly unhinged as the rest of the world leans out the window. Press Conference Public demeanor
is a gamble since gang violence wrestles inside a minuscule room furnished with glowing radar monitoring phantom targets reincarnated as no audible sense in accordance with empty parking lots where kissing is acceptable no rebuttal please. Renovated Madness My living quarters is subject to frisking by sensual murk invoking pancakes an unjustified taste at the crossroads of unscheduled shrugs their own language like bowel dysfunction in cabaret style which can only mean your tour is complete. Rehearsal Harnessed by grief no turning back this charming chemistry its history lesson projecting cutaway shots to manikins unwilling to budge reminiscent of taxidermy’s best expression something to recall on weekends like a crackerjack prize a cigarette burn a stuck sleeping bag one way or another one distinct moment turns the trick so anywhere is night with ambient hiss pressing my mouth in brutal succulence.
