I catch the moon by it ankles. Winze of
closeness introduces me to its rille. The
mensurative entity is our rivet. I like my
moon at a distance.

Ahistoric laugh in the adytum of my heart
breaks the ritual of rejection. Emotional
gypes keep me apterous. Ergonomics over
excess gradually whispers its wisdom.
