_______of-speech productivity, nuance risked
____________________________________ in mechanical terms. sky's
_______clime today a struggle from all view points of central /
_______south axis of the capital, territorial of 33-year oppression near-choked
_____________of radical life // dear Sean & Frances, comms methods
_____________on unconscious surfaces interpreted incorrect, via
_____________repetition of faux temporal absolutes when transportation
_____________links are severed / at capacity //
_____________by thames edge where the world of signs
_____________emits resonant humming from announcement
_____________sound canons / delirious americium
_____________/ markets of contemporary rationality, accumulations of its
_____________own projections / receipts as economic mythology beside
_____________winters post-mortem I
______________________________ am meaning to ask how a radical political
________________aesthetic can move beyond anger when entrenched in the

______________________________oxygen the remaining untaxed
_______// half left on the underground into brixton w/ permanent
_______distractions fixated into ear canal, & bourgeois physicality
_______is not universal our class groupings are revocable
_______on their terms behavioural evidence / by symbolic arrests
_______attempts at silencing reported in dominant outlets the private democratic;
