Thin mummified trembling bent fingers resembling razor sharp raptor talons. Grasp the burial shovel with a fervent evil malice. Reasoned breezes or teasing chaotic tempests. Dance on a marshmallow in a clouded pink fantasy. Sipping sweet tea with a lemonade pouted grin. My jello lunch reeks but a Thorazine high greets me; now painting the lawn in a mixed shaded scheme. Silver pleated brushes of bleach blond hair. Surfing into the fog as my torch is now hushed. My friend tried to commit larceny of my frenzied soul. I hear his cries for mercy from the freshly dug grave; behind the lofty asylum by the tennis courts where we loved to sit and watch the staff relax and playing there. I'm floating over the azure bay driving a '57 Chevy Nomad waltzing into a riotous decade whilst in a Prozac lunatic shuffle.
