Thought as Philosophical Torment
In the mirror of excessive drift there exist those values which exist within schisms within error wracked spectrums which glow by means of vapour above anti-dimensional obstruction the visage of metrics tuned to a mesmeric lisp to a rancid facial dice thrown across ethers across 3 or 4 sierras or voids so that each sculpting each prism advances the apparitional understanding to a macro-positional scalding which collapses which takes on the centigrade of absence bound to invisible comradery
