The flute player {intermix the} salsa record store {intermix the} straphangar’s suddenly released motion {intermix the} speed of brain’s telegraphic portrayal of an unwritten novel {intermix the} cute girl’s panty bag {intermix the} naughty flirt {intermix the} memory of a fractured humerus {intermix the} self-important insertion {intermix the} missed opportunities of a broken bone {intermix the} healing in a hallucinogen barter system {intermix the} body’s centrifugal error {intermix the} calibrating of that error {intermix the} adjustment {intermix the} acceptance {intermix the} carousel keeper punching tickets {intermix the} translatable intel tasering the voice of the in {intermix the} edifice enchilada {intermix the} cache of the connection {intermix the} wheels of steel {intermix the} bassline opportunist {intermix the} sensibility quotidian {intermix the} saying of stuff…

“Well I got up one morning, the sun didn’t shine, / I picked up my shovel and I went to the mine, / I loaded sixteen ton of that number four coal / The face boss said, ”Well bless my soul!”
