echolalia

by DEREK GROMADZKI

All day long day at the water’s end and halloos after saltgrass anthems to while away the lovely nothings where nothing lovely returns on wind in absentia from a witch’s kite unspun and lentor ashake amid marram all day long day at the water’s end where nothing lovely leaves on wind rewound around a witch’s kite to while away the lovely nothings where nothing lovely returns all day long day at the water’s end and halloos after saltgrass anthems.
