New issues, new dissections, but old directions, still hitting into the same sea of likes and dislikes, can I at least downvote this status into an oblivion beyond all the smiling false faces? My only headway is in the anthologies of others, no spotlight, just another position juxtapositioned on a live stream where everything amounts to a wash, obviously a dog whistle for oblivion Skies filled with amber and rose burst open, the one gift I can look up to, spring coming in through the foggy bookends of winter, should I pack my bags and go away this weekend?
