Play Dead Too Long And You Might Accidentally Wind Up Dead
If you run liquid into a wound it will eventually become a waterfall. A lip’s cracked skin can be as safe as an army trench & weeping willows have the most bittersweet sap. Hurt is the finest yeast so let us bake this sad sad bread. The pond is green & still with bugs. When things don’t move they get weird. The mosquitos are buzzing in the air & they’re coming for the ones with blood.
