crass lobotomy scratch this footage
persiflage precipitous persecute perilous no purr chary windup purse
      ,      clang
the length of demonstrative distance
to slumber slender then climb a number to put you there
to get you there the get is as good as a got the put
you get is the give you got if you good
from novelty this slant the incline
an early stage recognition system a
sli(ght)de to insight to deterministic wayfaring a way to pay if you play your way sliding into
revelation convenience conveyance convex convexity the knowing
bells like this arguably the shortest route
& why meander when
much proposals butt so rake
at stake


the string of the violin calling for air
intake      catch      callow              curving scimitar
Pythagorean scrambler —     cuirass cuvette cummerbund wind cue cuninculus cut the curtain call               comeuppance
escape a lark the devilish turn a dandy do opening night
to pitch the pot pinch the purse distraught the plug display the curse ......
recalcitrance romance rehearse desert the pack ... rummage ... rummage,,,
plumage scrimmage spirits skirmish
the ball’s in play relish
lay-a-way pay as you float remote a boat a goat a tote smote the ensemble heigh-ho alevio
heave from away
we go

in the outlaw of crow

                            escape artists
              flight wizards
                                  bunk buddyin barrelhouse buzzardry
                            go for


outlaw shoulders sprout crow wing
crow sports stetson pistol packs
crow on shoulder of outlaw
outlaw light with crow
lights toward town

lumbering formulations
black beaks spell the vocals
drizzle patterns
