Incandescent Bodies

Noon on her lips
around her eyes
there are aromatics, crucifixion
Dawn becomes her book, her death squad
Dahlias have this disturbing insatiable, visual hunger
Incense, skyrim
A Japanese light fell on her bibles, her trophy guides
Metal dragons flew around her meditations
In the neosphere, there are sorrows on the edge of these towns
Darkness, redness, whiteness

An unusual example of gas excitation is found when we crunch a Wint-O-Green Life Saver candy in front of a mirror in the dark / Among the materials that flash when fractured are table sugar / Maybe you can see red sparks in quartz, and a blue line of light when unrolling sticky tape

Night plays Czerny into symbol, synonym
Scales like a hedgehog texture pack
Light organizes the vampires under her eyes
unbound, flooded
Her venons become visible
Darkness zippyshares its
monster-chaotic, catastrophe-plagues
Two discarded souls form an unlikely bond

Triboluminescence is an optical phenomenon in which light is generated when material is pulled apart, ripped, scratched, crushed, or rubbed / Light is generated when material is pulled apart / Luminescence produced by friction, such as the emission of light when certain crystals are crushed / Let us show how to make blue triboluminescent or "smash-glow" crystals

You're so much looser when you're not explaining
about how about a man whose shirt is always half unbuttoned
whose disheveled hair blows
His autumns bring confusion about what she should wear
Kickstart darkness
We don't need guns, or superheroes, or, for that matter, God
I do not need to own my own twilight

But I do need to learn how to make candy and other items glow in the dark / Warning: This experiment uses toxic, volatile and carcinogenic chemicals. This should be performed with gloves in a fume hood / A glimpse into a glowing, pulsating world of gyrating shapes and atmospheric sounds

Document the region—photograph its wars
its persistent adherence to original texts
A woman who lives in a darkened old house
with her two photosensitive dead horses
An identicalness shattered their lives
When most of his peers were turning their eyes to deep space
he became smart, thrilling, funny & filled with great characters tangled in
the conventional chronology of Old World archaeology
It became a universal force of chaos and creation
Learn if under-eye darkness is a sign

Light emits from incandescent bodies, such as burning wood or coal / from her failed attempt at making electroluminescent phosphorus / Batteries, glowpaint, flames / When crystals of certain substances—e.g., sugar—are crushed, luminescent sparkles are visible / You can also use duct tape

Darkness should be compulsory
I don't know about you, but for me Summer is beginning to D…r…….a….gggggg. Yes, there is only so many sunny warm days an unemployed dj can take
Startlingly realistic dreams haunted him
becoming stronger until he is swept away
Copies of darkness are being delivered today
this auspicious anatomist dictionarrative

He looks like a rather hunky priest / but the 400-year-old undead hero in this paranormal romance is actually servant to materials that become luminous upon being scratched, crushed, or rubbed


Is it really possible to make your own luck? So what do lucky people have that makes them lucky. They are less anxious. Happy SMART Day Everyone! Now that the largest Mega Millions Multi-State Lottery is finally behind us, let's talk about luck. Do lucky people have everything handed to them or do lucky people know when to seize opportunities? They just happen to have winning lifestyles. Do lucky people do things to increase the chances of 'lucky' things happening to them? When we talk about luck, most people think of an uncontrollable force of destiny. I have a friend that routinely kills nice deer; not monsters but nice deer. He will hunt in a ladder stand with a rifle, not something I care to EVER do. Do lucky people make you angry? What do lucky people dream about? cr*p you don,t - make your own luck - i have been trying for years and never been able to throw off my unlucky shroud. Looking at lucky people is worthless because of selection bias. Lucky people score significantly higher in openness than unlucky people do. I agree with singing bridges. He's getting deer because he has an edge that others don't - and he might not even know what that is. Do lucky people have special advantages over you? When considering marriage, should you feel 100%? Trust your hunches. They believe that something good is always about to happen, like lightning. So how do lucky people do it? This is just an exploratory thought process that has germinated in my mind. More importantly, what do shamans do to enhance luck? Unlucky people are stuck in routines. You didn't come into this world alone and unarmed. Ok, so why do lucky people enter contests that don't interest them or involve themselves in social events they don't care about? Why bother? Lucky people are skilled at creating, noticing and acting upon chance. Try it today at work. Firstly, maximize chance. Put luck under a microscope. How can I get lucky? It is said that our luck is written in heaven. Take photos of my toes half-covered with beach sand and pressed against others like some lucky people will do. The Chinese believe that people who have big ears are usually lucky in life.

Do lucky people invest in a network of luck? Do lucky people commit more 'victimless' crimes? It's impossible to quantify luck. After thousands of interviews, I never had a chance to catch my breath. So, why do lucky people always make beautiful things look obnoxious? Let’s take a look at the typical profile of a ëlucky personí as defined by a study carried out in America. It's time to spice up your vocabulary. Birds and animals live in this space and so do lucky people. The mountains give them something to rest against. The sea gives something to swim, fish and get. Teardrops everywhere. Like • Comment • Share • Dear Diary, • August 5 via mobile. Why can’t lucky people see how lucky they are?

Monday Night Football, 10/31/11
San Diego vs. Kansas City
(made out of found tv text while stuck waiting in a bar for a delayed flight from Portland, OR to Newburgh, NY)

Get the safety down low
For me it’s Halloween
You know what the changes are
The Riddler? Riddle me
For the fastest three minutes, stop the snow
The shadows in a glorious darkness
Tonight, we are all in the air
Thank you, Harmony of Kansas
We bring the curtain down on October
Got to San Diego and lose, the schedule just got easier

He had to make numerous adjustments to life without his star
You’ll hear this name a lot
You are synonymous with slow starts
You didn’t make the trip to Kansas City on the defensive side
He has struggled this year in high definition on perfect nights
The injuries are out
He was selected to replace
lateral agility, and pick up the blitz
Who was the guy who wowed you first?

Late in the game there’s going to be a mistake
Push against the hole
Why are you sitting in the dark?
We weren’t built to handle all this data

The backdrop is extraordinary, arrows battle the noise
The crowd is ready
Kick it off
Happy Halloween

Injuries to the supporting cast
We have a false start, an opening drive
How much is the noise impact in the stadium?
Rivers back and fines
The height advantage, the ball is in the air
Loss of the yard outside
The crowd will help our injuries
Four steps follow three and out
Now he says, “I’ll take you”
He’s the NFL pocket, a functional space
The Going Nowhere Committee will court the rookies
