new from above/ground press: TALKING GIBBERISH TO STRANGERS, by Ben Robinson

Ben Robinson

Talking Gibberish to Strangers

oh some poor legacy to stone this becomes
species already overcome, this is the finish
terrain of settlers

Jim, find horror and show your husband
throwing my show down and saying
special and then younger and you will find
it easy when an English
priest or Nicola of the U.S. are away from
    country of origin

getting used to you
what was I supposed to feel
be an English online greyjoy
we just knew
the disadvantage is important
