SUCH A FLOOD

4 CARD SPREAD

Okay, so you’ve only got €4 left in your bank account and it’s annoying that

they won’t let you take that out.

But are you even sleeping properly? cause you kind of look like shit…

And as the city continues to sprawl behind you, you both begin to take on the

same grey hue.

Struggling to hold on so tightly will not help you (I want to say)

LET GO OF THE ROCK ! JUMP INTO THE ABYSS !

and trust that the fallow times are generating the perfect conditions for what

you’ll sew on your return.

They waged a war and waged a work force.

Exploration is also work,

Though it may not be valued by many,

‘Laborare’ means To Work

and To Plow

It seems you’ve found some magic beans, some seeds of transformation and

It’s looking pretty fertile in your garden, my friend…

And your €4 have somehow turned into a 4-dimensional-skill-set to create

whatever the fuck you want.

You are the Magician in the Garden.

And as we stand here together, looking at what is growing I see the colour’s

come back to your cheeks, even surrounded by the grey of this city.

Hysterical Historical Mapping

What constitutes ‘making out’ ?

There’s no ‘making out’ in this piece.

“Time is not of the essence when it comes to kissing,”

No – she replied, it’s about how slow and wet it is.

You can watch a 64 year old man ‘make out’ with a brick.

Lips are the border – but I don’t know why that is.

The body knows what the body knows!

And then what?

Surrender is so sexual.

All of a sudden there are 12 to choose from …

That’s 24 lips.

In a graveyard – I had just moved into the neighbourhood,

you can’t compare these things.

Can you show us the solo at the back of your tongue?
