the special earth of eggs

the butter is a circus to eat that large effort

shrimp seek a good olive loaf

spending a dime on the country mice

cooking in cheese theater three

not the knock is the wheel of the iron (that main eye is)

would you blake the cost to stuff one thread?

the chicken was a doctor of the pain

the caps lock is the rose of winter

your flock was a motor when I needed a battery

the rose of the puppet

I’m the man in charge of the dandruff goat


in the time of sugar there will be popping

space head like a lightning jar

the useful name of the white antler

the bee is keeping a head like a lamp

to wave a rainbow

the nest of the winter

without the mud there is no period of tune evasion

that window is the earth of the new morning

pete is the whistle of the hum


seven is the key in the cloning of a hand

it was a raking bug in the dark

shrinking could be the low burger

were you a box of bacon?

a clean brain to measure the winter

that lesson is the language of the sleeping peep

the sound of the mirror is the chain now

that same old owl is the letter of the clown

a heater of the blind fish is a corner of the bomb

the meter of the milk

packle pear is the name

we are back with the leopard

there is a bat at the roach factory


the king of crass rock

your hem is a pile of the coughs

the bea of the boa

that old golden word is the salt

the flea is the cereal anderson

the copper seethes

the nectar aside (a wolf of the combined earths)

james the cloud was a knot

the cloud was a decent word to lose

the chip-chip was not a rom of the rox

the same as the superman cape and nugget loaf

to shrink the hum

which burgers have been built?
