SPIV DRIVER #5 - SHINING A SPOTLIGHT ON IGNORED EXISTENCE
by Travis Jeppesen & Matthew Wascovich

One night I dove into a sort of skeletal limbo, full of snacks, smoke and taboos, I cried to the old men I found in the sailor's hands, but miraculously, they didn't talk man backwards of the red konthenic notions. The girl walked out of the coin of my memory, causing my heal to itch to the throngs of passion, where a stolen memory glances into the depths of a stolen lampshade in the space cabin of a modern homosexual. Homogenous backbones, like most of the oak found in the Balkan states, all taste the same, after all, no matter the size of the splinter or appendix. I bought a rubber in China and made out with the brother of the holy one in McDonald's. Then we got thrown out for wearing Burger King crowns.
Footprint on my face,
your lips against cheek licking me.
In this event, you crash and run
addicted to eating flowers.
Mingus is buried in water in India.
I've got tanks in my ear
and a tattoo of your voice in my head.
