…a lead pencil held between thumb and forefinger

I am in your state now. They compared white with red. So they hung the numbers and colors from upthrusting branches. The problem was light

Should we show the exchange of papers? Was it
Too soon to see the facets, their moving images surprise the other two
upon which were beings, projected time

clap if you want by the new moon which causes things to grow long and
thin, while the full moon causes growth that is short and
Mercy does not come from the sky
