Mithrandir

On store-lined streets where men and fish freeze ass together was the bloody fruit of new horizons.

Sweet, watery, leathery smells of flesh unmarked by experience or rancor--veins brimming with calamari dreams and holy, eternal sex-revolution.

Fearless pigeon, with your wings like an avalanche of the hours, guard the ever-waking eyes of fish and men, who want with deathless aspiration the soundless, roaring flesh parade.
