Arrived at the summit of its ascension, the joy cries come a new age. The chant’s no errant pass, May’s role ain’t maintaining iniquities of lords for the pure valleys, the anguished tunnels, the infernal fays. And chased-one she met a tirer for the que the devil approaches, just quiet of the pure he insensibly abolishes over the fine sables of reverie, and long life consumes a veritable dream, and you burp and you cry and you chant consume a dream of the paupers in the petal of the rose, and the jury finds convoluted consumption a sap of tillage, and the odor of the pure cacophony and the din-dins egregious, lower their red pustules in the sun, and the obsessions with cloths and clocks, and the plume…
