fast and furious archangel in paint and chrome brings me home- purring megaphonious, combusting with sav and sap that i glimpse peeking into warm grill chintz- then she lifts her corset bonnet and lets me touch her glinting bones secreting home spun pheromones attracting, like moon and sun- mysterious and mnemonic old senses, fallow and fenced soon become drenched quiller and squirter in that linguistic converter- glow mapping, overlapping, slowly blown in the metronome.
