As I told you before, this is the previous version to that Roots you have (or not) been tearing apart as the ugly tale it is. This one is by far much better. I can tell.

Velvet true  p1 of 2

Drop, drop.
In silk and fog,
From putrid flesh,
Pure beauty is given birth to.

There’s one. Then a new drop. Plop, plop, plop. Red and thick and sweet. The plastic tub in masonry red with characters from some Asian place that he couldn’t read in the beginning. It can’t be a pig or cow or dog. Human. It has to be.
