Untitled [The punctuation in between]

The punctuation in between
the fact that you manage to function
twisted necessity to proof
of deception, wasting every one’s time
as if buildings all in white are amusement
parks; strangers’ hands on your body the ferris wheel
cold hard silver between your legs cotton candy
