It was a mixed affair 
of love and hate. 
You are in deep water 
to engage in a dialogue. 

Almost farce was the 
black ice. Animalism was the― 
same. It was murder 
in one form or the other. 

The landscape would be 
remembered for illicit violence. 
The virgin sea hides the remains 
of midair collision. 

The purple men talk of 
casualities in war times. The 
relocation of peace march was 
a big mistake. The vultures― 

refuse to move from the trees.
