Arielle Tipa: The Shapes We Sleep In

awful astronomy


this electric musk      so ave maria

has better lighting in a drip-drop        pace 

technicolor    but of the b-movie kind -


flowers cut by guillotines cut to a kiss / cut to a

small and dreadful planet / cut to heavenly bodies who

advise us to be careful     of the shapes we sleep in
