........ they whispered back........

"Legalize this technology," they whispered back........... dimly lit bloodstained images........ continually unable to connect to its provider....... or other reproductive harm ........ exposing its rusted underbelly........ bearing a brown bag ........ his bitter watery coffee vicariously........ a space forever........ was gone........ "Little girl, will you get me some water?"........ the raised red button........ creating a twilight semi-darkness........ the unmistakable clatter........ without a mask........ white animals of indeterminate species........ against the wall........ grown enormous on mice and human handouts........ a lingering smell of urine ........"You noticed that?" ........ the water froze on the surface........ to the still frozen ground near the river bank......... childlike cries of the hyena pack........ while the drill punctured barely numbed teeth........ too close to the Interstate ........ a not exactly full stop ........ the sound of an unanswered telephone........ uninvited guests swarmed........ money for beer........ so many mistakes........ her hands on spinning clay........ the spider in his hair........ imprinted with pink orchids........ throwing up in the sink........ I began to drink........
