That cloud: a white, fluffy boxing glove.
The amputated man that sits on the seat
of the cliff: I am afraid he is in ecstasy.
He stole a spandex dress from a seven-
year-old girl and donned it himself.
Amazing, isn’t it?
The woman with elongated breasts: she
seems to exit a Mario video game.
His unabbreviated thigh casts two
Their ability: to sketch two dark marks
on the side of the cliff like eyebrows.
They imitate Frida Kahlo’s brow.
In this world, even the cliff shares the
woman’s body with a black hole.
