Squeezing The Orange



Spawning careers of the rich
cell phone tones ringing pitch
the birth of a trend, streets that don't bend
wet sand borderline frontier
unchanged pleasant politeness of insincere
an indifference in moods
backdoor entry name memorizing attitudes
streets laid out magnetic north
the pulse of power three quarters of fourth
kicks, tricks, flips, bumps and bruises
Sunday afternoon convertible cruises
extremely abrasive replacement excuses
images of perfection, fortunate selections
pricey art wall hanging collections
downtown's gravitational pull
bar room beer drinkers glasses half full
oceanfront summertime rental
three month hiatus hammock swinging gentle
tourist's in effort being so... cool
automatic adjustments airplane landing fool
