High Dudes Eclair

Hovering over lazy lurid urban towers of Planet Turbidio 7, Eurasian depopulation quadrants fuse in ruminant display of beachfront probity, profundity, and languorous loquacity, chewed to curbside dumplings by what pass for pre-teen embryotic neuroses.

Sampled flesh tones gas about on gauze container rolling stock in tent-gauge gutshot garrulousness of stovepipe buckboard squarecrow, encapsulating prestidigital enunciations of pride, circumstantial strawman embolisms, rotten floral nightcaps, bullpen hammock swing retardant, filmed incursion beast resection crib-coat caricatures of swan-schlong storyboard claptrap.

A crawdad climbs silently up Commodore Commode’s colloquial condom, fishing health from plainly exhausted lapels, wedged within an escapade of Churlish Hatpin, the swirl’s mossy coastal undertaker of sawdust sand and altruistically overhanded candied sea.

“How merciful, Spelunker Spansule, to opine scrotal climate contrails right heresy hunt canopies of canapes, cans of febrile gorilla feet, herbal halitosis, hatcheck hicks harking high and flighty, smudged to dirty slick-sounding triplets of parakeets, paraquat, parricidal palaver plops in cadaverous cascades of codicil concatenation casks!” cobbles Corky Cornball Cochlea Clunker of Cool Cantankerous Calumny.

“High dudes éclair, Spunky Customary Custard Gristle, fumed sass pro-nautical pylon light of cellophane candy spy rock glider flagellation cooed-for-noodling fury ambulatory gator-curling crawlspace contention ducks!” seduces an elongated lapse of lassitude in longing attitudinally secreted purity to limestone rack of clammy caveman pouch ketosis, clinging feverishly to Own Shark Poutin’ bingo-playin’ scratch-saw scanning syrup dish; our untied shipshape stem corrals all steamed in bottled burp gun blimp betrothal down bottomless bikini cajole.

“Coyly hoity-toity futility of tutti-flute he flew to flawed elucidations of hallucinatory prow marks, fending offal into scrawled ant recursion seminars of browning innings played till outer tusk retraction segue parking clots go counterpoint productive periscope correction flood down tethered champion to mushroom gout insidious for bowler cattle slather sod of couth carotid klaxon carbine clone. What muh spaceship imploded to nary cold cream old cockatoo in poodle premonition asperity!” seconds fecund-handed focal sigh-meister hound misbegotten marigold manufacturer of the marbled mountains of munged-in-mummified muriatic static, Sven Wiggle Chrome the Unctuous Antipathy of Hortatory Escapes.

Stall the wildly overblown hives, beleaguered ballroom pallor nun with nutcake gone to stammering groom comely, Pawnee Scrum Irately, Plexiglas Believer Pressed to Piltdown Posit of Vitiated Isthmus Hair, quibbled double flop for wobbly gangway over spark-infested sneezes shaped to lithe taxonomy of taxidermy in tank trap goggles.

Pizzicato Pizzerias

Afflictive asperity ascends to asphaltic asphyxiation after alimentary artichokes assail a simple salient of salaciously attired attics, easing easels into an estuary of Estonian eschewal, offered to perfunctory pralines by prelates in predated predilections for pompous pump house parturition in partitioned pumpernickel.

Nicking schnockered knockers with knock-kneed kneaders in needled nether emblems of symptomatic Cartesian cooperatives, clamoring kleptomaniacs cavort cabaret style, quaffing cabernet sovereignty with whittled shyness, tease-horn tenderloins, and tempestuous emptiness, softened so slowly as to assign an ensign an insignia in signpost red.

Yes, a hallowed ochre collar rings for stupefyingly gorgeous galleons of garrulous gorgons, emphasizing fiscal physiognomy, phyla of philatelic flint, phonetic flagrancy, piebald tombs to tree theistic tomcats till turnips truck a truculent trichinosis tonic to tallish touts.

Snow connives to convolve in cured conniption kits, canonized ions, iconic irony, idiosyncratic ignominy, whiling away a wild and wooly mammoth, a dragging dragon, a dung beetle in Dungeness dumbness dumping dumbbells down comforting Calypso corridors of clotted curdled kumquat quips, quoting quashed quotidian quiz casters.

Querulous quartermasters quicken the space cadets to bubbled starch, harkening quay plaque to Pleiku, kinging a beckoning shard of sand shark remuneration for panned palliatives, Pleistocene horsehair hides, heuristic hives hovering high over ovarian ovens, obviously offhand. Oblong obfuscators abscond with inner clockwork correlatives of cloying catcall caballeros, crooning closely cropped calligraphy in castanet corsairs.

Gag rules frolic frothily, flopping flexibly from Ferris wheels to wan imputed garrisons of goofball ardor, car door galoot guffaws, garcons in concierge disguise, incinerated insouciance, pizzicato pizzerias, entangled trattoria toast, timpani tomato paste, pasta prestidigitation potatoes, Decatur dumplings, inflatable infatuation, infarcted imbeciles in umbilical imbibement, interred involvement terns, stern prows, prowess peering into cinders of elephantiasis.

Handball yetis pluralize appropriated archives, dancing nude to hieratic hip-length hagiography in marginalia, marbled mermaid marmalade, munificent munitions, manly mimes, mimeographed monsoons, mollified malefactors, mollycoddled mumblety-peg munchers, mumbling millipedes mooning mesmerized malingerers with Molotov rocking chairs.
