Cacophony: Part I
out the back door.
Expletives are giving head to dangling
Semicolons are procreating
Clauses are eating out their
Syntax applauded itself and was then swiftly trampled by idioms.
Linguistics’ itinerant and abyssal itinerary

Somewhere along the lines being read between
a healing is creating itself.
Continuity is a fallacy**
