Qu'est-ce qu'un cendrier ii





Process
of a red stripe through much whiplash
of environmental sweepstakes misinterprets
slabs as they come forward. A
footprint





 directs traffic in the  center
 of flat crocus plaza as  the storm
 incurves on this new  situation. Why
 are there developments?
 A transparent shovel  paves, "they" say,
 residual elastic fetters
 pictures of moments
 brought under the sand
