                                                             Jelly madness
                                                       in sAndpaper socks
                                                      put Your hair into the earth
                                                      go iNto the dark meat of a crocodile
       spitting across syncopating roachEs into

                                                   buttoCks of vibrating nostrils
                           we can invent new bOnes
                  a village libating like niagaRa falls
                                              an armpiT of inflammable explosives
                                                         hEad units and gyrating limbs parading
                                                           Zoom
