All you say you want, all the words in the curse jar:
grip and grit and gristle.
The grand totem I had told you about

locating binge.
Nakedness of the bare word:
Nudity on a flayed bridge.

Until I whisper you this song:

this song is this
location hinged on singing
or the singing as signage for itself.
