Passages North - Matthew Schultz

Southchild Sundogged across the Barren Frontier where the Strange Horizons had a Rue Script Palette of Copper and Nickel. Unlost, they Perhappened upon a Wrongdoing Juke Joint on the Farside of Elsewhere. The Half Mystic / Full House was a Tinderbox. Broken Spire and Fractured Glass / sure signs of Versification. Orange Blush Thrush Waxwinged among Shoutflower and Hellebore. Pretty Owls hoot at the Indigo cat resting upon the Stanchion. Its [sub]liminal Meow Meow Pow Pow the harbinger of a Little Death. After the Pause, a Coffin Bell rang Five 2 One and The Rising Phoenix (Bandit of Lost Futures) Trampset, Unteathered, from Flypaper into the Indolent Wildness.
