I am not going to leave you

seam is thus created

blood

transcription

the scalpel dormant within a reed instrument

neither current nor tested character

spottings

2 2 2 2 2

the result a speech act

blood versions

horizontally

 now

there’s a wall where we shared

choices outside inside

music still

 motivation

see how rhythm milks noise

compare backgrounds

the visual immediate

once we start some say

cities also will.
