Why Do Sheep Become Jumpers For People's...
Tell me why do sheep become jumpers for people's torsos? Always in my sleep I mull over such posing problems And sometimes in my wake. At my wake when I am dead I will still be thinking of such things in my ghost-head.
Unloved Lost Plane
Hardy battler, hardly bitter, despite being treated as machine Metal mover, heard motion, momentum growing shudder Rudder rover, over the blue, tantrum non throwing green pasture passing landscape fleeing all seeing metallic gleam

the soapiest bubble in the unfrothyness
A proud regal face in the crowd of sub human race
