  • Global Ocean's Deep Water
    579 words

By the universe deserted, she'd tell it to go to hell, and she'd find body of water, or a mirror, on which to dwell. So wrap up care in a cobweb and drop it down the well into that world inverted where left is always right, where the shadows are really the body, where we stay awake all night, where the he...
