STRIPS

Where to how start stop irregular verbage of the rest of the statement clings to the threads unraveling from your clothes.  It just can circle as it settles and lifts away from another plastic bag as a plastic bag makes its imitation or rendition of a deflated animal incomplete crushed animal hurrying prolonging across the road until a car stuffs it into one of its wheels and gives up on it the giving up there it is what a bargain the only one or two things left.

She wet hair to make it stand up like everything else that couldn't see the point to remaining erect anymore staring out glazed windows glazed with breath thickened by regret and mixed messages tossed messages with croutons and things that go purple for the regal pains of summer when her hair is wettest and shortest for the long text between periods at the end of and left out of the end of reading until the paper flames with frustration and outer galaxies where did they come from us that is going so soon drudging in the valleys written out of place next to hairs out of place as if pointing to another topic that escapes her thoughts for coming down from the objections the objections spread about the house and pinned next to light switches on and off on and off mostly on to keep awake and finish make a complete finish of it for the next breath that hesitates too long is that funny?

She lifted her wet hand from her wet hair that dried and bowed in the mirror and the other one humming with discouragements of the centuries and satellites following commands from footnotes that starve connections between rectangles and shapes of memories sinking into the end of the reading until the paper flames with frustration and outer galaxies where did they come from us that is going so soon going so soon some things go so soon.

Rectangles cluster for open to open the bits just one bit would be would be a start going so soon where open to open rectangle atop strips pressed strips with her hair wet to stand to bow to the mirror and the other one do the first rectangle last center or the corner hovering above don't land yet not ready it can circle and settles as it lifts away from another plastic bag can't make it round their heads no speaking no words out of heads that cannot be made round started over and over one sheet after the other the pile is almost gone get more and the pile disappears into as it circles and settles as it lifts away from another plastic bag prevented from making round heads no speaking no words out of heads that cannot be made round started over and over one sheet after the other the pile is almost gone plastic bag heads that cannot be made round no speaking no words from heads that cannot be made round next sheet sheets cluster to open into an open for a start one bit just one bit would be a start going so soon so soon.
