"glue stick goes north," "jerrycan exxonic," "one baby & baby," and "mortgage (dead pledge)"

glue stick goes north

soothes who &
whom that l
a cloth bicycle
heaven of the golden



jerrycan exxonic

in the garden
at the beginning of the future
hear the gravy siren?
           I eat my andes mints
           & my radish pie
           at daniels & fisher tower
the BVO gas station is gone



one baby & baby

it’s tree time!
I am without
the sporting news

on the final earth
on the famous earth
a northern idea
yurt head a



mortgage (dead pledge)

morning again
morning again
pink eye
blue &
morning again
