Another year already how the days and weeks come all is weak. Barcodes.
There are many night nails this isn't news merely the factory there's a nightmare where the sun, it's our rivers and the right in false constantly from sunless skies. There's a night veil, where the main is a smiling man. I feel where the mayor is a brave woman and course. There is a need they'll that has no mayor I never will have one again. It is a night fail. Without a day nightmare without night there, night there, where the dogs sing and the birds bark theirs night fail with no people only the angels moaning, and being their fingers theirs. Night veil where I was never porn, There's a night
is a where I was never poor. There's a faceless old woman who secretly lives in your home she's in every night. Well, there it is night veil, where time runs backwards and a night veil were times skips about and there's a night fail where time doesn't work at all that this nightmare, Terms, weird, time is weird everywhere, but it's specially weird here there's a night veil where Dana is the voice of her town and a night veil we're dead. The synergy and patch of haze is the voice of her tat and I feel where you are the voice of your task in finishing a voice.
Infinity of night, but here in this I'm voice Cecil a voice like distant traffic a voice like strong coffee at midnight? Once there was a god with intentions, heart full of love. She shattered us into many verse, All of us Once there was a general full of courage and victory. She wasting our time about itself last us in a labyrinth of ours. In years once there was a man. His dreams were simple. He wanted to be an actor. That's all. A little to audiences in

The clouds former frozen patter, like snowdrifts in the sky, a voice at night there so in front of the microphone mouth open, but no words coming out all the voices in all of the night. There's on the highway out of town cars or stop dead.
Their drivers caught glancing at their phones or scratching their ears and thinking about what would finally make them happy or looking in the mirror and trying to gauge whether the car behind them belongs to the share of secret police farther out over the mountains and to the coast. The waves are stopped, made fall, foam caught, rising water caught tumbling
an old man in Canada, trips on a shoe discarded by his grandson and there he remains hands out mid air too late for anyone to save, but not yet colliding with the earth. He will dislocate his knee a soldier in China. Squint said a bird trying to decide which type of bird it is really it's too distant to tell. But the soldier makes a game of distant past the tedium, and so here they are squinting at a bird that has stopped mid flight. Its wings outstretched catching win. That is no longer moving, observe the soldier in this moment a thin slice of a long life out in low orbit. Spindly silver be graceful. Silver craft is caught in an instant when its appendages that are not really fingers, but what I will call them fingers, even though technically are closer in function to kidneys when its fingers phase through the skull of seeping human, that it has brought a board reaching into the humans memory seeking out a clear understanding of a planet at the being has been passed to observe that plan and all the other planets cease for a moment in their senseless hurdle through the back door, suspend the way they aren't.

He stepped don't talk to his lawn nodding at passers by and various idiot birds he spit through his teeth, his hand on his hips. What the sun move for a while. Then he not in approval of everything he had seen and stepped back inside. Well, we all express happiness in our own ways A few minutes ago I got the most interesting voicemail from my most interesting husband, Carlos it's our sixth anniversary today, you know anyway,
he was so excited. I've never heard him talk so fast in his life. Carlos said he opened the clock,
that was on our mental peace at home, the one that was given to him by his mother the day he perceived as Phd the one he brought with him tonight there, the one that, after having come tonight, failed, he opened to find that it was full of moss and fur and human teeth. Time doesn't work and make veil Thea realised and he mourned the transformation of both the clock and his experience of the days and years of his life, but he still believes in keeping his possessions in perfect condition, and so today he opened the clock to brush its teeth, only defined it was full of gears and a battery and was ticking away. He measured the movement of its minute hand against the sun and found that the sun, instead of disappearing at widely different times, was sitting on a normal schedule. He called me up his voice, cracking with excitement bordering on terror. Cecil Cecil, he said to me. Cecil time is normal. In night veil
it is night night veiled soon the sun will rise and we know exactly what time that will happen. Our lives have all lurched forward. Is that good stay to next for exactly what was scheduled to run next at the exact time it was scheduled to do so. And from my mouth to your ears. Even after all, these years, good night night fail goodnight.
