bright bird was to wear an apple

the miracle ice of the world to know us
the complete corn as a new vegetable

we hear of the light as one more of the soundhouse tapes
cooking that brain too loudly

the robotic moist apple tonight is the shape of the dream
we get that rasp of the clone

the start of the world in the ice of shrimp hampton
ministry of tree foot the gallant yes

we hear the same talk from the dragon
you have that serious foot of the proper talk

the fool in the ice water
the starting gulp and a new picnic
