Sample text

Technophobic, skeptical, the boss’s voice follows his stomach into Rome where a single season 31 brought out the wind, heir to everything we love. Imperfection is the toy of the wind, its vice and virtue the aroma of movement, and don’t you cuss that fiddle boy unless you want that fiddle out of tune. P Every Time the Mountains Every time the mountains gather In like this a brand new painter Mentions something, as if modestly. A group of horses swinging their necks Resonate too, until the brightest Of the pities dims them, the latest Foal agrees to ordure, grabs at rest, Reimbursed by rumors that confuse Their kind with kindness.
