"Always A Playground Instructor,
never a killer. Always a bridesmaid
on the verge of fame, or over,..........

She's trying to rise........

Come here
I love you..
Peace on earth
Will you die for me
eat me
this way
the end
-I'm surprised you could get it up.
He whips her lightly, sardonically
W/belt.
-Haven't I been thru enough? She asks

The dark girl begins to bleed.
It's Catholic heaven. I have an
Ancient Indian Crucifix around
My neck. My chest is hard
&brown. Lying on stained &
Wretched sheets w/a bleeding Virgin.
We could plan a murder, or
Start a religion."

"Mana Man"

He gets them into the dark hour
By playing singing stories hypnosis
Wilderness                           the island
Led out of bondage            (back there)
Viciously peeling fruit

Disguised as Pplayers
Command Performance

See-thru village
Old hot forest of cars

Cruel ambience
Leopard snake dance

Swift lions of doubt
Crouch in the window
& wait
for her to come.........."
