Assuming Quicksand

Embarking adoration rips acetic eyeliner loot from second-can tobacconists before a pensive shiver ever ruptures, crepuscular in muted metal rain of wagon sickle hiding squeak.

Nods withstand explosive giggles, gaggles of frocked wolves, and messy old smiths, all flying on method dreams, passing casual clay and sunny glimpses of imbibed recycled calendars, traduced to marginalia by posed ergodic flippers.

Punchy cardigan pairs irrigate erotic tackles, plucking blockhouse bullion into phased legality’s codicil of sullied keister casuistry, breaded to alpine consanguinity by a Merovingian quadrant’s hortatory usurpation.

Jocks morph twice, rowing through floating thighs, christening the shapely seagoing gulls with lungs of needy illusionists.

Melodious weeds throw secondary towlines in estranged attempted basket-chaser freebie whist, carping at neural streets of vortices, equivocation becalmed by sonar.

Finally, theta ran into homey guardians, cordoning coughed talons, fusing anisotropic ideas within another pout, assuming quicksand.
