A flower blooms in a tar pit.
A thirsty fly drowns in paper.
A silk nightgown on rain clouds.
A carbonated flat tire.
An illuminated copper shoe.
A spilling sapphire receding behind prawns.
A giraffe swimming in a shot glass.
A dichotomous hippopotamus on house arrest.
A long-sleeved homeless tape worm.
Wrought run sun with veined split ends.
Picture framed water stripes.
Tattoo dust collects postage stamps.
Rewind socks chirping before sifter.
Thylacine doctor runs cling wrap sand.
Curled caverns on perpendicular charcoal.
Words knit bodies on the ends of extinguished outlets.
