Genesis: a major quake along a minor fault
Path: applejack whiskey and wine
eye-for-eye reduced, to tit-for-tat
What comes after "next"? Next does
and after that is a next it precedes, follows.
Not vague, nor varied. After papyrus, paper.
Not left at the stagioni, not subtitled.
Nothing neutral. With a "me" it's personal.
Each generation has its cry, just as each swagger
follows from lust/lover to helpmate.
Meander, mosey, saunter, wander, drift, stroll.
Then DANGER of strong backwash, sleeper waves,
rip tides, currents, surf unsafe, no lifeguard.
Botswana, Turkmenistan, Palestine, California.
