The thing is - I love you. Echo Park - water again. A loose rope costs lives. We all appreciate how hard you’re working on this metaphor. What exactly is a bundle? How often do your friends go to the toilet? We never did work out where that extra mouth came from. A man sawing a trumpet in half. Someone who loves you is watching over you, protecting you. I’m a drug addict and a virgin! This is a fictional dog; the dog does not exist. I saw that shoebox ten minutes ago. Why would you be sending a telegram to my hallucination? I think you need something in an alligator. You must not look me in the eyes. Everyone’s searching for their shoes. I need my cleavers. Are we standing for luxury items? Then I was discouraged by you. Love is a pretty pretty thing. The fish are dead and the chair is broken. She went to Australia and hurt her wrists. I love my frog and things I have in the pond. This is a blank page. Each kiss was in reality two kisses. I will sing forever of your love. I’m alone in the world. You are especially pretty. I’m sorry I punched you in the pelvis. From here they look like books.
