vino e panini con Michelangelo

I

sometimes it’s necessary to mess with (reality)

our obsession with logic compels us

to mow our lawns every Sunday –

we’d all paint the grass if we could

 

II

blow-up!

blow your mind up

make your mind up

blow your makeup

 

III

wine & sandwiches in Rome

London owes you a decade

God’s hand will rest on your shoulder

along the Po di Volano, at rest in Ferrara
