We’re born out of an extended in the past season.
Everyone is certain of position and race. Blood and semen
mixed in dust and cervix, convex and enchanted by means of muskrat’s eerie smile,

Let the identify Pontiac take new shape and hit the road,
the righteous mile the place judgement and boundary blurs,
especially on issues of composition
blood, bone, and relations.
