The Next Big Thing in Words

We probably made it possible for you to relax
on all cylinders. With your hand practice you
can soothe someone around you on the F Train.
What's the thing? It's that you listen, which helps
the passengers around you grow and evolve,
you tell them that. When you were exiting the train
station at Bergen a big brown bear was standing there.
You are very polished, which happened to impress us
even more than how articulate you are. The way
you said you use your imagination to cover
someone's sleeping face with a pillow. You
filled one of those doll's heads full of Welch's
Grape Jelly. You play smash mouth ball.
Anyway, the light around you is greasy and white
from your high protein diet, but oh boy, you'll
live a very long time you said. So try it again.
What did you do this summer in 100 words?
How did you spend your money? Are you still classy?
It's like you're alive and throbbing with glitters.
