Thibault Raoult


Fourteen Totaled Strangers Gathering
  Under Linden



Stray egg stray shadow stray
Mirror roar stray burial.
And so on. Entonces optimysticism.
You bring me fricative goldenseal.
It does. One never suspects clearing
Itself. You shouldn't have said
ROSEWATER like that.
There will be no more snow in Bath.
Time to hand in our peep:
Video killed the maximus poems.
I name you. I know who you are.
I am sad I lost your lure——VROOM.
