Lane change lifts infection from the source, dilutes a coded pique. Thus, shifts the frown, instills this day to come and stay, apart from fences that deflect a new way and hold tight to this right-sided roadway. A diminuendo of the venting, narrowly endured. I hear a voice report that she remained a child of the community, the many homes. A match to flower into pretty fire, thus loved no matter what. Now wanted brightly as new snow.
