Asleep among the mandrakes gilded leaves
patinabaste that noumenon through in-
terstices not envoi, injuncttresspass
on our obdurate beauty. Basilisk
the plaint of trains in dreams the monster's cog-
nomen will spell in contrecoups, inform
our ptosis, nostalgia decoct. From lust-
rate vademecum Bel's head rose; exhumed
rezipped the vale antinomian.
The river fret. How repetends a mock-
ingbird? The fauve balloons of folk a mom-
ent ornamented leaves' disserverment
that heaven hang in oaks. The foil gone
as quick returned and nominated all.
