"sanitation yarn," "a false cooking show," and "half of all halves are"

sanitation yarn

half of the world is a night time language
the chain heart was gumming today
a world of the corn klee
that sort of burd in the branches
the cardboard apple
the satellite who
chairman of the ufo board
eating peanuts with the blue jays



a false cooking show

the cactus is a wild pore of the sports night
ghost handling not included so plan accordingly
cheep cheep and it went on like this for hours
to know the name of the white bean casserole
the move from human to earthling
cheddar dump was a lightning spore
when the dreams come down
the shaking of the language to go



half of all halves are

when we spoke of the james to understand the face
if that’s what is left after the nuclear war
jonky junior was a catch of the mile wet rex
that was gone by the time I was a swimmer
a leather yes until there was a creation fix
the leather wig could be the coke machine
            the corn of the table
            when you like yellow corn or blue corn
