BLURB

I know why yes I know why: how and why you jump so high. In the club and at the mall, oyster bars and southern debutante balls. Jewelry store day-dreams and dollar sign eye lids, copy cat tatted fashionista with predominantly unrealistic high-bids. With your easy friends gone on their sunny day mega highways, red paint for all convertibles, bright red tape for every Taipei. Sitting, sulking, struck by the straightness of printed currency lines, reaching up for some fame, added bank account zeroes and face time. I know why I know why we’ll all sing at your eulogy, with you lazily jogging, jumping , stuttering brutally. I know why you jumped high I know how you got lost now, I was jumping right with you so naïve of the cost wow. [Ryan Nimmo]
