light ether is said to bring virtues


or nausea - the give and take and yields


of the market, unseen vegetables still yet to be had,

if everything is the now and outside then we are in trouble


I will take off all my clothes and do the camel dance


a khaki colour


the text glances forth to a night of riot and separation
