Hostess, your cup cakes.

A cushion has

this best-selling

difference

a very

likely roundness

and a

difference

a very likely squiggle

costume is like roundness and

a difference

a very likely

roundness and more like

a chair and a cushion

consume

a difference a very likely

roundness and a place

to change

in appearance,

supposing you

know the signature squiggles

of

forever.

Enjoy in multipack

cake

in feather is

not much more joy in that you do

not

know there is like to season that

you

may not a very clean

that

you

may not

a very little

difference a very clean them.

Gratitude. You know. Squiggles.

Little powdered donuts

 

little powdered donuts

making you feel good or

completing your fill

they can maximize

you

the agar stabilizing

chemical imbalances

with an icing agent

language is a virus

Sugar is a respite

fried up nine to fifteen percent shortening

the pastry

an O

an exclamation

a surprise

or eyes, or tits

if you have two

the little kid

with the phone for an eye

sees your no name package

of little powdered donuts

and you panic because

he knows you

shit

he will ask for just one

then his sticky fingers grab at another

one

Melodically he pleads

big o’s

You must resist

greed

from his or yours

an exclamation

You

hide them

stuff as many as you can

in your consuming mouth

fevered in love wanting in need

palm oil skim milk powder

skin skinned pleased

more high

elation

fast food gratitude

Donut. You contain stablizers

Maximize me

Hold me solid in this moment

Contain high levels of agar

enriched wheat flour

water

complete me with

potassium chloride.
