Ah, so we did get a bargain without even knowing it.
The ape shyly smiles and presents its cheek for a kiss …

Their neon swims across my whimsy metrics
in the small, air conditioned room.
Whales tornado a hundred thousand phrenology busts.

The workers tie on her marvelous golden sandals.
This cool shade sweeps me.
