HAHAHA!!! – this was the literal spam comment in my folder today. I clear them out from time to time. Most makes zero sense and the rest are cialis links. This one though, this one hit me differently. It stopped me in my tracks and I gave it a minute or two. Felt there was something here. They say you can see art anywhere if you really look at it and I kind of feel there’s poetry in that spam computer generated gibberish. What about you? LOL

When I turned that key, the night was finally over
It wasn’t easy, they threw a few fists
Mad that the ale had dried up
