Jane’s Second Husband

  1. JANE brings him his little pick.
  2. Me up. He had made Trotskyite.
  3. Ice axeing into a bankable piece.
  4. She couldn’t not tar over the rummy.
  5. They got in touch with their inner.
  6. Fossil saurus. Decided that they were.
  7. Victims of improper ventilation.
  8. But they had already planted a flag.
  9. Or two. JANE wanted to go Baltic.
  10. Thinking that he would touch her.
  11. There, since here seemed to be such.
  12. A problem. But there was no high.
  13. Tailing it out of. With that kind of.
  14. Notice. Their friendly neighborhood.
  15. Watch lady had already been carried.
  16. Off to the salt mines. A seven-eyed.
  17. IT taken her place. And IT looked.
  18. Like the type who really walked.
  19. The straight and shiny narrow.
  20. For the time being. They couldn’t.
  21. Help but keep. Their hands out.
  22. Where IT could. Really see them.
