Thanks for the memory

all that is alive merely evaporates

you don’t want to remember

‘small slices of pie

iraq or 9/11′

adamance was rewarded with

no one leaves this room, motherfucker

‘all of the extrordinary records you set

in the area of drugs’

it was a chemical tuesday afternoon

clark was in petaluma

‘reduce the uncertainty

that people confront’

investors retreated to safety

of government debt
