Immersed in the depths of myself, I realise my own rotation. 

The fresh glue drips, the heaviness rips out downwards as the norm of sexuality is declared

by advertisements for erotica fairs outside, covered by a poster of Persil, Barely have I closed

my eyes and I'm covered once more in promotions for the new tour of 'Looking for Freedom'

by David Hasselhoff.

How should the carriage get ahead if the horse stops?
