A Miracle Elixir
The Elixir bearing this label, so surpassingly agreeable and gratifying to the taste, is intended to be an efficient substitute for those repulsive bitter tonics against which the delicate stomach so often revolts. The secret carbon-filtered blend of extracts from fifteen different herbs and root tarks promotes the capacity for Learning and Open-Mindedness, strengthens the Nerves, and revitalizes the Spirit while effectively warding off negative symptoms brought on during periods of Vibrational Chaos and Unsettling Earth Changes.

...i'll give you a home.

...this town is made of starfish-
i need a seahorse.

...i let them circle 'round
and defeat me

...if there's a nurse that takes
your ears in ration- seta a
plate to feed the stifled steel
if there's a nurse that feeds
your erm soaked dinners
on a tray of bones and orange peels
