Behold, another installment in the series of non-sense intervened with social discomfort, illusions and the magic of realism.

Much like the world around you, the short outbursts of meager poetry are trying to convey the fleeing world.

My body persistently misinforms me about a whole lot of things. One more reason to get to the bottom of nearly everything. Then again, emotions get in the way. My body persistently misinforms me.
