O staggered sequence
into whose meticulous knots I
strongarm and bluff sense
O ululating wiki crypt I uninstall
on a moment to moment basis
here in this La La Land where odd is idyllic
I have cheated ascesis and made no advances
that can be seen these dozen increments and as many
dwellings See how on the tonsils
I have rendered my desperate
plea in the theft of Tetris my quest is most
days? Wands off, por favor

*granular synthesis: a method by which sounds are broken into tiny grains which are then redistributed and re-organized to form other sounds.
