   BRAID &              drive together
                                  no nothing

                  peak & pull 000 same direction extended loop
                               hit of the hologram    liteleak    transparency

                              3vrsns aligning to remind me what it was like to fall asleep & wake up in
                              different homes    other homes    my own &   pit stops along the way with
                              crisp sheets & tight bodies    got somewhere  got it good   keep reminding
                              me    keep   finding the invitation   at a different post office in a new town

            remembered the myth & thought it better to sleep & breath

      difference thru repeated actions
      root the knowing
honeysuckle   &    daffodil
      known solidification
      in expansion

      e n chanted
      release any explanation
      or make it juicy comedy
