There was much free laughter and champagne It was wonderful. ' Interpret it Differently, but it was too late, 1 was loving it too much, I was actually loving humanity; beautiful, young, Playful humanity. S. as if • you are a case of halitosis, gingivitis, dandruff & split ends all rolled up into one • you are a granny knot undone by an older & wiser scout leader • you are a piece of performance art that deep down inside wants to be a bust of Beethoven sitting on a Steinway grand piano « you are a primal scream trying to differentiate yourself from an existential scream • you are a hockey stick broken over the spine of a 19th century hunchback you figured had no business playing street hockey in the first place • you are a healthy Hi-Pro™ glow • you are having paranoid delusions that a figure much like Henri Matisse's "Blue Nude" is following you around trying to get you to join the Jehovah's Witnesses • you are the distance between the hyperbolic curve at the y-axis • you are what you eat • you are a reified universal transcendental signifier • you are kind of pissed off that you were never given the choice of whether to be a sequitur or not« you are, and if you aren't, who is?

My bound breasts. There's no such thing, I've got it all wrong, there's no miracle I can't make right again. This is it.
