Treasure Island

**The Inverse of Functionality


Impatience.

it seems to seem
a change of scenery
may clear the vision.

Excess.

a symptom for some
of symptomatic
impatient leanings.

Spend thrift.

a week of weekly
paper green
medication.

Addict.

Sex-st ained sex tips
jarred whiskey
alcohol cleanings.

Impatient.

Clearly
cl eared
of any conscious
leanings.

    David, it is true we all have our hang ups and little idols or things that motivate us. We seen meanings of certain things in life differently as well. A thought provoking piece. Loyd
