PRESS RELEASE FRNLENG

 

yr cavity sometimes looks like

a mouth

but not as much as

your darkened waistline

as it bridges elasticity

towards its

impending light.

a blown up gravel stone or whatever

you might use

to stop it

(like how).

like there’s no image

that can tilt u

but u felt it when i told u that

 

when u swam in the sea and i opened yr mouth

and i heard u

gasp.
