from ANGOLA: A Dictionary of Names, Forms, and Actions

by Adrian Lurssen

[Teeth: A Methodology]

"Absolute north" is to "guerilla outpost" as "love" and "antelope" are
the bush they occupy: uniform urgency as overt as names on a skirt. The
range is an exercise, tame as a vase, and to talk is to occupy. In
time, the
range is a plain without end, an envelope of light unable to injure
Or an ostrich, and light becomes the uniform -lips, a skirmish between
what's open and what is tapping to loosen time.

The plan to explain is absolute, but only an entrance.
