the lost apple of the walking ones
I arrived on a bush plane
mud makes me mad
salad green had something to say about eating nice words
the tortoise was bug-eyed and surprised when the hare swam by
why is there a drawing of a head on the wall?
the eyes are mandalas and the mouth is a portal into the next room
that train of travel will get you back to the square where you started
the apple was a circle on the board and it grew and grew and now it is the board itself
a young hum to start in the back of the ward
after the recollecting his honor will have the high toast ceremony
to make a name as the king of eating
I have the same recommendation for you
