Check the Groyne and Moil
Murmuring a conventional recitative
the baritone herded the baronet

He moved chalk for a guilder
& forced his secret destiny through

bereft of his destiny,

“I strike a teenager with a baseball bat to gain blue-collar credibility.
I feel dirty reading on the toilet.”
— Ben Lerner / The Lichtenberg Figures
