Park the cargo between the lines. Shred the shady spots just enough, so...you know.

Here we stand at a proper checkpoint. Shoes untied to trip up the trip.

"Vodka Red Bull; rocky relationship."

Set the sky on fire in order to gauge reality. It's been a long time since...you know.

Grasping at straws to suck up whatever lies at the bottom of this muddled post-truth pool. Swipe whichever piece of plastic feels less inflamed.

"Hello? This is the wake-up call you requested."
