how to discuss impending doom

p
pppppprep your loved ones with a constant siren

 

pppppprep your hands for filtering sand

at the bottom rung is a rumor, you soothe it with bitters

 

prep your tongue for salutations, bending your knee and extending goodwill

 

pppppelixirs are cornerstones/ vodka & cherry & sex sweat /

pppppimpending doom is in lust      impending doom is motionless

 

you’ll need to swallow hard quick each background noise is a disruption to your doom

 

ppppppppppprep your doom

ppppppppppkiss your doom

ppppppppppfuck your doom
