TranscriptLook! Into the shuddered sun up from the jaundiced dust the lithe stripling shinnies O he shinnies up and vanishes into the bare firmament O no mirrors O no ropes of smoke. When on love intent. Then the venomed cobra swayed erect in flickered dissonance in shrill insistence weaving woven in the nagging raga drops through thundered silence into its captive basket back. The lid is gingerly replaced.
