Quelle Grammage!
happy with today’s random encounter. he came home with me ma - can i keep ‘im? ps they don’t write liner notes like that any more. “The first few moments on land are always disorienting. I need a moment to adjust to the air warming against my skin and the unfiltered light coming in straight lines from the sun.” that one time i wrote one poem about #björk’s “Alarm Call” the miracle of the talking camel. it’s telling them to bury brother-saints cosmas and damian together because damian did not break his vow and accept three eggs as payment for medical services rendered.
