TOY

believe her when she says it’s for the best...

Wind-up & Let Go. Marching.
Drumming. Gearbox. Against.
Hollowness. Crossbelt & Starch.

Grinding & Sunlight. Surfaces.
Believe. Turn-key. Spinning.
Blast. Fathering & Mass.

Apart & Garden. Mumps.
Doubt. Mainspring. Across.
Wind-down. Recapture & Fill.

Cubbyhole & Halt. Tedium.
Drill. Dreamlessness. Forgot.
Childhood. Reuse or Through.
