Volumetric

i tuck my wings beneath the seams of indelicate triage a fuselage of time’s bounded barrage disparage at cost of trade beyond the parade of a rippled montage while we play charades with bombs and brigades ~ i have been sweetly remade by hands that assuage this voluptuous volumetric the balance of whispers in my […]
